International Students

International students have a lot more to consider, from Visa requirements which affect their enrolment each semester to the overseas health cover. For this very reason, we also recorded a second induction session that addresses these points specifically.

Enrolling for the first time

If you've received and accepted an offer to study the Juris Doctor, you now need to enrol in your courses.

Study patterns for the Juris Doctor are available on Programs and Courses. The study patterns are the same whether you choose to study online courses or in person (on campus) courses.

 

Re-enrolling

Current and continuing coursework students must re-enrol themselves for each session by the appropriate deadline.

 

Managing your program

As a postgraduate student of ANU you take responsibility for your own studies administratively and academically. This includes correctly enrolling in the courses, updating your personal details in the ANU system through ISIS, applying for program leave, withdrawing from a course without financial and/or academic penalty, verifying Census Date deadlines, applying for FEE-HELP (if you are eligible) and more.

 

JD Online Course Offerings

From Semester 1 2020, the online delivery mode for all compulsory courses in the ANU college of Law Juris Doctor will be phased out. From semester one 2024, all compulsory courses in the ANU college of Law Juris Doctor will be delivered on-campus only.

 

Capstone Course offerings

The JD Capstone requires a minimum of 6 units from the completion of a capstone course. The following is a list of Capstone courses available to all JD Students. Further information can be found on the JD Capstone Course Page

 

Research Paper

A research paper may be taken as part of a Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Laws (Hons), Juris Doctor, Master of Laws or Master of Legal Practice program. The course is worth 12 units and involves the completion of a 11,000-16,000 word research thesis. The specific length will vary, depending on what course or program you are enrolled into.

Please see the GRU page for more information.

 

Complete your JD at Oxford

We also offer the opportunity to complete your JD at Oxford, while also graduating with a Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) from the University of Oxford. See our Oxford JD page for more information.

 

Graduating

Completing the Juris Doctor is a significant academic achievement and is rightly celebrated at the University's prestigious Conferring of Awards ceremonies. Conferring of Awards ceremonies are inspiring events that have both formal and symbolic significance.


 

Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP's)

A Commonwealth supported place (CSP) is a place at a university or higher education provider where the government pays part of your fees. The University has a limited number of these placements.

More information can be located here

     

    Check your program fees

    All students will receive an invoice in ISIS in the first weeks of each session you are enrolled in. Your invoice will indicate the cost of your course tuition, and the due date for payment.

    Eligible domestic students may apply for FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP through ISIS to defer their fees to the Australian Taxation Office. Ensure you apply for FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP before the course Census Date or you will need to pay your fees upfront.
