For students who want to change the world

A message from the Vice-Chancellor

Hi, I’m Brian Schmidt, the Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University.

I’d like to encourage you to think about enrolling in one of the Vice-Chancellor’s Courses. These courses epitomise what is different about the ANU and why we are so proud of our students. The courses are for highly motivated students who will become leaders of the future.

They involve active discovery and research. They are courses that are interdisciplinary in terms of content, teaching staff and students enrolled in them. They involve ANU researchers from across the wide range of different disciplines, sharing through innovative teaching practices cutting edge research with students. ANU alumni in prominent positions in the private and public sectors are also involved in the teaching of these courses.

I hope to see you there.
