B Asia-Pacific Affairs provides students with an in-depth exploration of Asia-Pacific regional affairs, drawing on the strength of ANU in four different subject and disciplinary areas, including politics and government; international relations and security; conflict and peacebuilding; history and cultural identity.

This innovative program will give students a unique opportunity to understand the transnational forces and contemporary challenges facing the Asia-Pacific region, and to deepen their understanding and appreciation of different Asia-Pacific cultures.

The program will facilitate a cross-crediting arrangement with Ritsumeikan University (RU) in Japan that will allow for student mobility in both directions. Students who study at both ANU and RU will, upon successful completion (and with cross-crediting), be eligible for B Asia-Pacific Affairs (ANU) and B Global Liberal Arts (RU). Students will be required to undertake two years of study at ANU and two years of study at RU.

This program will admit up to 10 students per year to begin studies in semester 1 at ANU's Acton campus.

  1. Use all ATAR profile data as a guide only; it provides a broad overview of the ATARs and selection ranks of previous Year 12 students admitted into that course. ATARs and selection ranks required for entry in 2019 may be different. If you are unsure about including a course among your preferences, contact the relevant institution.
  2. This ATAR profile table is in line with Commonwealth Government transparency requirements. It is based on offers to recent school leavers (ie completed Year 12 in 2015 to 2017) who were selected solely or partly on their ATAR. Note that some institutions further differentiate this information on their websites by publishing:
    • separate data for 2017 Year 12 students and 2015/16 Year 12 students
    • data relating to an entire year's intake (eg all offers made in 2017 – semesters 1 and 2).
  3. The ATAR values exclude any adjustment factors.
  4. The selection ranks include the ATAR and any adjustment factors.
