It was founded in 1946 as a postgraduate institution, with four centres — the Research Schools of Physical Sciences, Social Sciences and Pacific Studies and the John Curtin School of Medical Research — but began offering undergraduate courses in 1960.

The university often battles it out with the University of Melbourne (UoM) in terms of rankings. Nevertheless, you can’t really go wrong in choosing an institution created by the Australian Parliament with six Nobel Laureates (in the fields of physics, medicine, economic sciences) amongst its alumni and faculty.

According to ANU’s website, ANU offers more degree combinations than the other Australian universities. Interesting majors it offers include Furniture Design Arts, Latin and Corporate Sustainability. Its main campus is located at Acton, near Canberra’s CBD.

With all the information that’s out there, coming to a decision about university isn’t easy. But there are a couple of things to prioritise to select a course most suited to you. If you have a clear idea of what to study, or whether you want to go into postgraduate research, definitely look at individual subject rankings to see what university will serve you best in that area. But if, like many students, you are unsure of what major to take, look at the course structure instead.

Some universities offer a broad curriculum that allows you to mix and match subjects and tailor your bachelor’s degree to your interests, giving you some form of flexibility should you change your mind. Keep an eye out for if a uni offers placements and vocational options to improve your employment prospects. And if one of the motivations for moving abroad is that you’d like a change of pace from Singapore, find out more about campus culture and residential colleges so you can immerse yourself in the university community. And whatever you choose, know that rankings aren’t everything — your university experience is what you make of it!
