Australian National University
Best Things About This Uni
I really like the great access to resources such as the multiple libraries, internet journal databases and knowledgeable lecturers that the ANU provides for its students. Makes studying easier and more enjoyable.
On campus life and the quality of education recieved.
The ANU has a well deserved reputation nationally and internationally as Australia's finest university. The social life is great, the facilities on par with other universities however it is the opportunities, world class teaching and unique opportunities open to students in the nation's capital and available to the ANU that really sets it apart from other Australian universities.
The facilities for Photomedia ! Huge darkrooms, black and white and colour analogue printers. Also Octoberfest steins, $5 !
Direct contact to tutors, lots of clubs for social/sports activities, but personally I liked ANU most because of its character of a capital and large countrytown at the same time. Everything was in cycling distance: campus for studying, town for shopping/eating/partying and of course nature for leisure activities!
The Campus! Everything is incredibly convenient (sports, banking, food, supplies, you name it). Looks spectacular in Autumn (especially the main stretch, University Avenue)
The best things about ANU is countless, but I will mentioned some of the basic qualities of ANU. 1)- Highly rich and experienced faculty members. 2)- Great infrastructure i.e. there are about 200 buildings at ANU. 3)- Countless facilities for the students. 4)- Well reputed among the world's top universities i.e. its at 17th position through out the world , which is marvelous achievement.
There are so many things... It's a beautiful campus, the academic and general staff were great, it's so close to the centre of Canberra, there's a great feeling of belonging and community spirit.

ANU Film Group
http://www.anufg.org.au The Film Group is a not for profit film society that has been operating on the ANU campus for over 40 years. It is one of Australia’s largest film societies, screening up to 200 films per year to our 1000+ members.
We show films from a range of genres, varying in age from silent films to the latest blockbusters. Films are shown up to 4 times a week, with double features on Friday and Saturday nights. We even have a canteen selling drinks, lollies and snacks at most screenings.
Membership is open to everyone and costs $60 per calendar year or $35 per semester. Membership gives you free entry to all films – no extra entry fees!
The set up includes a cinema sized screen and Dolby Surround Sound. There’s nothing like a student audience to give film watching a fun and engaging atmosphere. And there is the bonus of it being located right on the ANU campus.
It is a definitely a great way to see films on the big screen for a fraction of the price of commercial cinemas. Programme information is available on our website.
