Applying for an exchange program involves 2 steps. First, you will complete the GEO application process and interview. Selection for this program is based on a review of your online written application, transcripts, recommendations, and completion of the interview process. After your initial application is complete, GEO will review it and select successful candidates for nomination to ANU. Nominations are made in March for the fall semester and in September for the spring semester of the following year.
Next, you will need to complete a secondary application for the host university. After being nominated by GEO, students will receive instructions regarding the secondary exchange application for ANU. This typically includes an application form for ANU, and providing documents such as your transcript, copy of passport, study plan, and a statement of purpose outlining your study plan at ANU.
ANU makes the final decision regarding acceptance into the program. The acceptance letter will also include information about registering for classes.
