Are you ready for 2023?

Say hello to 2023 and starting a new year at ANU! 

While we still have a few weeks of summer break left, it’s time to start thinking about coming back to uni.  

Whether you’re a first-year student or a seasoned pro, having a plan to come back to uni sets you up for a successful year.  

To help you, we’ve created a back to uni checklist.
