Foundation Studies progressing to Bachelor of Economics and Finance
ANU College gave me a good foundation in economics, accounting, calculus and stats, which meant I was well prepared for university. It was great to familiarise myself with the ANU environment, and it offered the best pathway. The curriculum is tailored to ANU and because the university is research-based, we learnt the tools and the skill set we needed to be able to succeed. Independence is definitely one of the attributes I developed during my time at ANU College, as well as confidence. Teachers and lecturers encourage the students to participate. It's made me braver to speak up and contribute to discussions.
