Indigenous Students

Aboriginal graduates all around Australia are working in a variety of careers. Teachers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, managers in government, business and Aboriginal organisations; the opportunities are huge.

You have the chance to join the growing number of indigenous students from the mid north coast who are undertaking a university degree, or following a TAFE to uni pathway. Many are the first in their family to take on tertiary study.

A university degree will:

  • help you access a rewarding job, and
  • give you the skills to make a difference to the community and the lives of those around you.

And going to uni is easier than you think.

  • There are options available if you haven’t completed school or didn’t receive the required marks for uni entry.
  • Depending on your circumstances you may be able to apply directly to uni without meeting the University Admissions Centre requirements.
  • Financial support may also be available.
  • And once you’re at university, you’ll have access to support and mentoring, as well friendly meeting places for indigenous students and staff.
