Indigenous students

We would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners of Country, the Cadigal people of the Eora Nation. It is upon their ancestral lands that the University of Sydney is built. As we share our own knowledge, teaching, learning, and research practices within this University may we also pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever within the Aboriginal Custodianship of Country.

The Cadigal Program is an access and support program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who want to study at the University of Sydney.
