We are excited to host ANU Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences (HASS) Showcase on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 April 2017 from 10am to 3pm, along with College of the Asia & the Pacific, the College of Law and the College of Business & Economics.

This event is designed to provide a unique and enriching program for your Year 10 students (later year students are also welcome) to experience the breadth and diversity of disciplines available within humanities, arts and social sciences. A similar program will be run over both days, so schools are invited to attend one day. 

This event gives students from the ACT and surrounding regions the opportunity to come onto the ANU campus and get a first-hand taste of university arts, humanities and social science studies. The day will feature some exciting short presentations, interactive activities and tours from leading ANU experts. Lunch will also be provided.

ANU is the highest-ranked Australian University in the QS World University Rankings for 2016-17, and also the number one Australian university for Arts and Humanities^.
