As an Australian or international student in Canberra you’ll find all the services and facilities you need from both an academic and social perspective. 

Imagine a learning environment that combines an easy-going attitude with top class teaching facilities. You’ll have access to renowned academic resources including the National Library of Australia, the largest in the country.

Ours is a vibrant multicultural city, but not so big as to lose its community appeal so you won’t feel like a number.

It’s safe too, with one of the lowest crime rates of any major Australian city.
