The Charles Perkins Centre will expand the University’s education mission nationally and internationally, and revolutionise the way we teach the next generation of researchers and practitioners.

We are committed to the development of education programs that provide an opportunity for innovative learning, inspiring students to think differently and to work collaboratively across many departments and diverse disciplines.

The centre is establishing world-leading academic programs through strategies connected with current research project nodes. This will allow us to build upon existing units of study and identify opportunities for developing a range of new and innovative education programs exclusively offered at the centre.

We are currently developing a range of innovative, cross-disciplinary teaching and education programs including:

  • postgraduate degrees
  • intensive short courses
  • online programs
  • professional development
  • other education opportunities for clinicians, industry and the community.
