A Global Summer Program presented by The Australian National University (ANU).
Sunday 25 June – Friday 14 July

ANU is opening up its Vice Chancellor course Mobilising Research to select ANU international partners, including King’s College London.

DSL161291 IARU summer program_FA1A3_Ext (002)This intensive, interdisciplinary
Summer Program will equip you
to put research into action and
reset the agenda in favour of the
public good.

Over three weeks you will live, learn and work with students from a wide range of disciplines and from around the globe. Your exposure to different mindsets, approaches, and cultural                                                  norms will challenge you to see the world the way others do.

ANU would like to invite research oriented students from King’s College London to apply for a place in the course. The three-week course will bring together a small cohort of high quality students from around the world to explore how interdisciplinary research can address future global threats. This intensive course is equivalent to an ANU semester long course and students will receive an ANU transcript for their studies.

Students will be accommodated in university residential colleges as well as spending a week at the ANU South Coast Campus, Kioloa.
