Greetings from the President

Hi Everyone,

On behalf of our International Students’ Department (ISD), I would like to, with great joy, congratulate you on beginning a new chapter of your life here at ANU!

As a new comer to this university, to Canberra or even to Australia, we understand that settling into a new environment could be worrisome for you. However, we believe you will soon realise that ANU, as one of the top universities in the world, is a place that not only will help you achieve academic excellence, but also aims to provide great study experience for you, no matter where you are from. As the main representative body for all international students at ANU, together with Student Experience and Career Development (SECD) Team, ANUSA, student clubs and associations and other stakeholders, we are here to support you along your journey of discovery.

As an international student, you are automatically a member of the ISD. We are the peak representative body for all International Students at the ANU, and we protect your welfare and interests.
For the past two months we have been working really hard to prepare for the O-Week. By partnering up with SECD Team, ANU sports and various national clubs and associations, we are now delighted to let you know that we will be hosting 3 information sessions, 3 AFL induction sessions, and our very own International Students Welcome Evening (ISWE).

At ISD, we always strive to provide better services and supports for our fellow international students. It doesn’t matter if you have any questions, suggestions or simply just want to say hi. Please feel free to come visit us at our stall on the Market Day or get in touch with us through our facebook, website or email!

I hope you are enjoying your time in ANU and transitioning well in Canberra

Warm Regards,


Winson Widarto
