Association For Defence and Security Studies

The ANU Association for Defence & Security aims to promote the study of security, defence and strategy at the ANU. We hold a variety of events, both academic and social. ADSS holds or sends delegations to over 30 events during the academic year including $5 Parmigiana Nights, ADSS's Lecture Series, ADFA War-games, ADSS Paintball and more!

The association is a fantastic means of gaining a wider understanding of international and Australian security, through collaboration with your lecturers, tutors, peers and organisations external to the ANU. To join ADSS, either come along to one of our events and sign up in person or make an online. Membership to ADSS is just $5 for the entire year, so get involved in your student community today and make the most out of your time at the ANU!

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