The Special Industry Project is currently offered as a hybrid course; with in-person events subject to meeting COVID-19 restrictions set by the University and College. 


SIP provides students with the opportunity to:

  • work effectively and professionally in a team setting to develop practical solutions to a business problem
  • communicate effectively with peers and business professionals

  • gain a valuable development and networking opportunity.


This course is available through a competitive application process. To be eligible to apply, students must:

  • be enrolled in an ANU undergraduate academic program or an exchange program at ANU during the semester for which the program is taken
  • have completed a minimum of 72 units (or equivalent for exchange students) across their academic program by the time they would commence the program (students applying for a degree transfer will be assessed on a case-by-case basis)
  • have space in their academic program to enrol into a 6-unit course during the semester for which the program is taken
    • We will work directly with the Student Services Team from your College to determine if there is space in your academic program to enrol in SIP. Please note that your application will be withdrawn, regardless of the stage you are in, if it is found that you do not meet this requirement. You are welcome to contact the Student Services from your College for a graduation check before your application, if you are unsure about this requirement.
