Some ANU graduate degree programs may have Commonwealth-supported places (CSP) available. CSP are limited in number and selection is highly competitive. Places will be awarded on merit and not all applicants will be successful. There is no application process for a CSP as applicants who have received an offer of admission to a postgraduate program are automatically considered. Visit the ANU website for further information.
