Highest qualified teachers

ANU researchers - your teachers - are the best in their fields. And with some of the smallest classes among Australia's top universities, you get to work closely with global superstars. 

At ANU you will learn from recognised experts from around the globe. People like 2015 ACT Scientist of the Year Colin Jackson, Chennupati Jagadish, Kim Rubenstein ... there's a long list of inspirational people here who will take your learning to another level. 

The 2016 Good Universities Guide awards us the maximum 5-star rating for staff qualifications with 86% of our academic staff holding a PhD.

And the best news about all of this? On average ANU has the smallest classes among Australia's leading universities, which means you will have real opportunities to connect with some of the world's brightest minds.

We count six Nobel Prize Winners among our staff and alumni. Most recently, our Vice-Chancellor Brian Schmidt was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2011 for his discovery that the expansion of our Universe is accelerating, radically changing the way we think about the nature of the cosmos.   

An astounding 95% of our research is rated 'above' or 'well above' world standard in the last round of the Excellence in Research for Australia results in 2015.
