Association For Defence and Security Studies

The ADSS is the first and only student society at the ANU dedicated to those studying- or interested in- national security and defence issues. We aim to promote the study of security, defence and strategy at the ANU through a variety of academic, social, and careers events held throughout the year.
Come along to our wargames for a taste of crisis simulations covering everything from counterterrorism to food insecurity, and to our careers events to network with security professionals from both the public and private sectors. Membership to ADSS is just $5 for the entire year, and can be purchased at Message our facebook or instagram pages or email us for more information!

We don't have anything planned right now but check back soon!
