Our program

ANU Continuing Education (CE) is run by the ANU Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) with the aim to provide members of the wider community an opportunity to extend and enrich their learning.

We offer a range of non-accredited courses to members of the public: Community Courses for those who are keen to engage in lifelong learning through the study of languages, visual arts, history and philosophy; along with Executive Short Courses and Micro-credentials which are developed by ANU colleges and institutes, catering primarily to the professional development needs of the workplace and executives looking to expand their career opportunities.

We also provide Professional Learning programs and workshops to support ANU academics with learning and teaching, including course design, inclusive teaching and digital pedagogies. 

In addition, we host ANU Extension which is a distinguished program that provides an enhanced learning experience for Year 11 and 12 students in ACT schools and colleges, enabling students to study sciences, engineering, computing, mathematics, commerce, languages and Asian studies at ANU while still in high school.

Our presenters

Our team of academics, trainers and industry experts deliver practical courses which are informed by well-grounded theory, research and pedagogical approaches. All our presenters hold qualifications in their areas of expertise or possess extensive experience in their chosen fields.


Most CE courses are held on the ANU campus and some are held online 'live' via Zoom. 


All our courses are non-accredited and participants receive a certificate of participation via email upon course completion. 

Community Courses

ANU Continuing Education has delivered short community courses for more than 50 years and this tradition continues today. Offerings span Asian and European languages, art and history/culture/ philosophy. This diverse program offers something of interest to most and is a great way to continue the journey of lifelong learning.


Executive Short Courses

ANU Continuing Education provides the hosting platform for a diverse range of executive education short courses. Each of these is developed using the vast knowledge and experience of world-leading academics from ANU colleges, institutes and schools. So if you are looking for some training or up-skilling as part of a professional development plan, please visit our page today.



ANU Continuing Education also hosts micro-credentials on behalf of ANU. These are similar to executive short courses but provides recognition of the learning you have undertaken to improve your professional knowledge and practice.

On successful completion of an ANU micro-credential, participants are awarded a digital badge to certify skills and/or knowledge in a specific subject area.  


Professional Learning

Professional Learning programs and workshops are available to ANU academic and professional staff to support learning and teaching at ANU, with offerings across a range of areas including course design, inclusive teaching, and digital pedagogies.
