Leading in our region

ANU offers world-class expertise on the Asia Pacific and is at the centre of preparing the next generation of regional specialists.

With your support, we can continue to pioneer new research and teaching methods that tackle challenges, from world order and regional security to climate change and gender equity.

Our donors support our students to receive the very best training, learn beyond the classroom and engage with new cultures, work with policymakers and get hands-on experience.

As the national centre for language teaching and research in the Australian tertiary sector, we offer close to 30 languages and are an international leader in modern language studies. Donors help our students experience transformative opportunities such as studying in a country where the language they are learning is spoken.
