    Bhutan
    Bachelor of Law/Bachelor of Science
    The first-year science/law student, who left her birth country of Bhutan as a refugee, says:
    "I had this feeling in the back of my mind that if I did law, I might have to give up on my love for science, so finding out about
    this double degree at ANU was amazing. Now I’d like to find a career where I can help people."
    Her interest in science and the human body, she says, was fueled by a kidney disorder and her personal research into the
    condition. And her interest in law developed as a result of her parents’ background.

  Cairns, Australia
  Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours)
  (PhB) - Science
  "Imagine attending a university situated at the capital
  of Australia, the heart of global research, and ranked
  number 24 in the world! To this day I have trouble
  believing this but I’m proud to call it my university. I
  study a Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) in Science
  and it has been the best decision I have ever made
  in my life. Moving from Cairns to Canberra, and living
  off campus was a very daunting idea. However,
  through the non-residential college Griffin Hall and
  my small PhB cohort I have been able to make many
  friends which allowed me to transition smoothly into
  university life.
  Through PhB I have already undertaken a research
  project in physics with leading researchers that has
  opened doors. My other major concern was whether
  I’d find the opportunities to balance out my studies
  with extracurricular activities. Never fear as ANU
  has over 180 clubs and societies! It’s rather hard
  not to get involved! I’ve had the opportunity to work
  in the team for the annual ANU Student Research
  Conference. I have been elected as the President
  of the ANU Music Society and am a SET4ANU
  orientation leader. Overall my experiences at ANU
  have been life changing and I cannot wait to see what
  opportunities lie ahead in the future."

                                                 student from India and this is my ANU story.
                                                 The ANU exemplifies the phrase world-class. The unique exposure to excellent
                                                 learning experiences coupled with access to the world’s leading minds makes
                                                 ANU a global hub of knowledge. My time at the ANU has been colourful to say
                                                 the least. I have had the good fortune of engaging in a range of academic and
                                                 extracurricular activities over the course of my tenure. From engaging in national

                                                 residential leadership positions, community outreach and personal development
                                                 programs, I have been able to uphold and cherish a standard that is characteristic
                                                 of the ANU community.
                                                 The ANU is not just another university; I have found it to be a dedicated institution
                                                 that paves way for growing minds to be nurtured. I chose ANU and in turn chose a

                                                Bachelor of International Security Studies
                                                "I’m from Vietnam. I chose ANU because it’s one of the top 20 universities in the
                                                world, on par with many top British and American universities. During my time
                                                in the Bachelor of International Security Studies, I’ve had my ups and downs,
                                                challenges and rewards. Every class’s robust and detailed discussion comes with
                                                rigorous self-research on topics. Every essay is the fruit of hard work and long
                                                hours of labour.

                                                I’ve taken a minor in Historical International Security because I like history subjects
                                                and I think they are essential for an international student like myself to become
                                                familiar with Western cultures and their progress of civilisation.

                                                Without the study of history, it would be challenging to make sense of what’s
                                                happening today. In the future, I hope to work at a non-government organisation
                                                like the United Nations or ASEAN. These organisations are where I can apply the
                                                most of my knowledge and findings and actively contribute to peacekeeping."
