The Board of Graduate Studies provided guidance and advice to the Australian National University Council on all matters of academic policy and practice relating to education, learning and research. It was provided for by section 22 of the Australian National University Act 1946 and statute 4 of 1950. This statute was repealed by statute 36 in 1960. It first met on 4 December 1950 and was chaired by the Vice-Chancellor. Its members were Professors of the University, the Registrar, the Librarian and from 1956 the Master of University House. Its last meeting was on 23 September 1960 and it was effectively replaced by the Board of the Institute of Advanced Studies.
