About the Australian National University Program
The ANU campus, established over 50 years ago, is walking distance from Canberra's city centre. Located in lush parkland, it is punctuated by open spaces and low-rise buildings. There are frequent bus connections to town centres and suburbs, and essential facilities and resources are all close at hand.
Approximately 16,715 students study at the ANU, with around 7300 doing their first degree. The ANU is comprised of seven facilities. These facilities are Arts and Social Sciences, Asian and the Pacific Studies, Economics and Business, Engineering and Information Technology, Law, Natural and Life Science, and Medicine, Biology and Environment. The National Institute of the Arts offers courses in the creative arts; that is, visual arts, digital arts and music.

City Of Canberra
Canberra is the national capital, located between the two major cities of Sydney and Melbourne. As the seat of the federal government, Canberra contains the head offices of all federal departments, the national Parliament and is the headquarters of the most significant national associations and lobby groups.
Canberra is a "bush capital", just two hours by car from the snowfields, two hours from Pacific beaches and three hours from the bright lights of Sydney. An open, hassle-free and convenient city, Canberra is the ideal place to study and live.

Housing & Orientation
Participants in Brockport's Program at the Australian National University (Canberra) will be housed in a "single" (unshared) accommodation with the choice of self-catering or catered facilities. The Student Housing Office will assist in housing placements on campus for all Brockport Australian National University (Canberra) Program participants. Participants should apply for on-campus housing on the web https://www.anu.edu.au/study/accommodation after they have deposited for the program. All Halls and Colleges accommodate both men and women and have single study bedrooms that are heated and carpeted. Most Halls and Colleges provide shared male and female bathroom facilities (with individual shower cubicles). One residence does provide female-only bathrooms.
If on-campus housing is not available and the Australian National University is unable to provide participants with university-owned housing, participants can arrange off-campus housing. Lists of off-site housing may be obtained at the above website.
An orientation program specifically for study abroad and exchange students is conducted by ANU during the week prior to the commencement of classes in both semesters. Issues covered in orientation include settling into life in Canberra, culture shock, accommodation, health insurance, clubs and societies, email access, study skills, weekend trips, and social events.

As a very rough guide, a participant in the Brockport ANU Program will need to budget approximately $600 to $700 AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS per month, to pay for daily local travel, textbooks and other school supplies, entertainment, meals and other necessities.
- This estimate does not include the purchase of clothing; travel in Australia outside of the excursions/field trips organized by the program.
The actual amount that you will spend depends heavily on your style of living, and will vary with each individual's personal spending habits, entertainment preferences and travel choices.
Note: We strongly recommend that you purchase trip insurance to cover loss of luggage, cancelled/missed flights, missed/cancelled program, etc. In the event that you cannot attend a program (for example, with a medical emergency or U.S. State Department Travel Warning), such insurance can cover loss of program fees resulting from a cancelled program.
Financial aid applies towards fees. Please be sure to check with the Financial Aid Office at your home school. If applying or receiving financial aid, you will need to give the Financial Aid Office (at your home school) a copy of your acceptance letter and budget sheet.
*Varies depending on the SUNY campus at which the participant pays tuition.
**The SUNY Health Insurance is mandatory and will be included on the student's Brockport invoice.
The cost (and items included in the cost) as listed on the website are subject to change and should be considered estimates. Final budget sheets will be mailed to the student prior to departure and usually upon acceptance.
As is the case on your own campus, not all courses will be offered each year and/or each semester, but the vast majority will. For a complete, updated listing of courses offered, visit the Australian National website at: https://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/. A list of courses and specific course descriptions may be downloaded under faculty headings.
Participants of the Brockport Australian National University (Canberra) Program will normally earn four or five credit hours for each course successfully completed at ANU, for a maximum of sixteen credits per semester.
Participants of the Brockport Australian National University (Canberra) Program will select (prior to departure) four courses available to study abroad students at the Australian National University.
Participants in the Australian National University (Canberra) Program are examined in the same manner (and to the same standard) as their Australian counterparts and classmates. A number of courses in which they will enroll are examined formally at the end of the semester and in order to be awarded credit, participants must take--and pass--the examination at the end of the study period in question.
