Why I chose the ANU

Students continue to choose the Research School of Social Sciences to complete their tertiary and post-graduate studies because of its international reputation; its extensive libraries and research resources; its favourable class sizes; access to some of the foremost experts in their fields of research; its location and proximity to key government bodies, national institutions and international organisations; its fascinating courses and programs; green campus and surrounding environment; and its cosy social atmosphere.
