Indigenous Education and Research Centre Experience and prepare for uni

Experience and prepare for uni

University can seem like a big step and our preparation programs can help you decide which direction you want to go! These programs introduce you to what university is like without you having to commit to a course just yet. They range from face-to-face delivery in a week, online learning that you can access in your own community and pathway courses leading to your dream career.

If you are looking to study, our What can I study page goes through the Indigenous Studies we offer, such as our undergraduate subjects, postgraduate degrees and graduate certificate.

Still feeling unsure? That’s ok, you can always contact us and we will help you.

"Summer School gave me many of the IERC's supporting connections that I still use today, such as fortnightly phone calls to see how I’m doing, providing a safe space I can go to as well as scholarships I can apply for. Summer school even helped me get a job as an IERC ambassador for future Summer and Winter schools.

I'm grateful my experience at Summer School has allowed me to meet all of these beautiful people."
