All the official communications (events, notices, updates, etc.) from ANU are normally sent by email, so it’s  important to check your ANU email account regularly.

Jade

Hi, I am…

Jade, Student Services Administrative Assistant.

My tip for you is…

Take a course from a different School or College that you think will be fun or interesting! University is all about learning and improving yourself, but it’s also about exploring new things and seeing what else is out there.

The thing I love about Canberra is…

It can always surprise you. It surprised me when I moved here. Like a lot of people, I thought it would be boring. Turns out it’s filled with wonderful, driven people and there’s always something happening (Floriade, Sky Fire, Truffle Festival, Multi-Cultural Festival, and so much more!).

Outside of work…

I’m always exploring the city with my friends. I’m blessed with a solid group of girlfriends who are always keen to do something, and we’re slowly ticking off a long list of restaurants and activities that we want to try. There is never a dull moment.

Please ensure all correspondence is via your ANU email account, so that we can identify you when we provide advice.

It’s full of diverse gastronomical adventures.

Outside of work…

I’m into fitness, music and movies.

Hi, I am…

Marina, CBE Scholarships and Prizes Program Coordinator.

My tip for you is…

Fee reduction scholarships are paid at the beginning of each semester and cash scholarships are paid after Census Date.

The thing I love about Canberra is…

That it is my home. I love Canberra not only because it’s a beautiful city but because there are no tolls!

Outside of work…

I eat and drink my way through Canberra’s establishments. When I’m not eating, working or binging on Netflix, you’ll find me at the gym taking part in pre-dawn workouts.


Mick

Hi, I am…

Mick, Senior Student Services Officer.

My tip for you is…

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

The Green Shed – check it out for the best thrifting and upcycled items.

I indulge in photography, paranormal lore, house hunting and travel.


Sarah

Hi, I am…

Sarah, Senior Student Services Officer (HDR).

My tip for you is…

HDR students who wish to enrol in a course need to lodge an eForm via Manage My Degree (MMD) on their ISIS account. They can’t enrol themselves directly like other CBE coursework students.

The thing I love about Canberra is…

We have outstanding restaurants and many hidden gems across Canberra to check out. I love that Canberra is so close to the South Coast, Sydney and the snow!

Outside of work…

I love animals and enjoy walking my dog, Harvey. I also love cooking all sorts of cuisines and exploring the nearby wineries around Murrumbateman, my new neighbourhood.


Tanya

Hi, I am…

Tanya, Senior Manager, Students and Experience.

My tip for you is…

It is never too early to start planning and preparing for your future. We have student-services advisors to help you with your program and course choices, as well as career consultants to help you prepare for the workplace. Come and see us, we are here to help you maximise your time at ANU.

The thing I love about Canberra is…

The array and quality of the food. Having lived and worked overseas for more than a decade in the Middle East, Europe and Asia, I was thrilled to move to Canberra and find that I could still get all of my favourite dishes.

Outside of work…

I love bush walking and camping, and being able to spend time in nature.
