ANU Extension Welcomes Students onto Virtual Campus

In April ANU Extension welcomed 233 year 11 high-achieving students onto a virtual ANU campus  via a ZOOM orientation session to mark the beginning of their ANU Extension journey.

The welcome video by Deputy-Vice Chancellor (Academic) Professor Grady Venville, accompanied by her dog Honey, was well received and added a little fun and informality to the ZOOM session. 

For now, all Year 11 and Year 12 extension students will complete their courses in the areas of sciences, engineering, mathematics and Asian languages using ZOOM for teaching and course resources on Wattle.

The student and teacher response has been remarkable, with everyone adapting to online learning with enthusiasm and purpose. It is hoped that a return to campus may be possible at the commencement of the ACT school Term 3, if not sooner, to access the impressive lab facilities, staff expertise and teaching spaces that many students are keen to experience. 

The next round of applications for Year 11 students will open in September 2020. Prospective students can also approach their school career advisor for more information.
