WHAT IS COMMENCEMENT?

Commencement is the formal induction for all new students at ANU. It’s an opportunity to hear from the Vice-Chancellor, notable graduates and other great speakers about what makes ANU such an exciting place.

Expect a fun event full of colour and excitement and the opportunity to get to meet some fantastic people.

The event will also feature a traditional Welcome to Country, remarks from the Vice-Chancellor, and other great speakers.

WHAT ARE THE COLLEGE INDUCTION SESSIONS FOR?

Each of the ANU Colleges is offering a number of induction and information sessions for commencing students. These are important to attend, as they offer specific information about your degree program. The sessions are all held in the vicinity of the College offices, and near many of the classrooms that you will need to find. College inductions give you a chance to meet your degree convenor/s, many of your lecturers and discipline specialists, as well as College Student Support staff. These are the people who can help you throughout your degree journey. We reccomended you attend as many of these sessions as you can.
