International Students Department


The Australian National University International Students’ Department (ISD) is the university’s peak student-led representative body for international students. ISD is run by students and is not part of ANU’s Administrative Division.

Our mission is to communicate effectively with stakeholders through a system of information exchange and feedback, to be accountable and transparent to our community, to foster integration within and between different groups of our community and to increase engagement and interaction with our community, resulting in a greater presence. Throughout the year, we will be putting on a variety of events to achieve our aim. We will be putting on workshops on different topics for you to familiarise with Australian systems of, for example, employment. We also provide opportunities for you to create networks with other international students, through more social events.
