You can advise us of the language you speak at home and tell us if you are of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent via eStudent.

You are required to check this information and check/confirm it is correct through the My Details tab. Students who can enrol online MUST do this before they will be able to enrol. If you have not already confirmed your details a warning message displays, follow the links to confirm your details.
