We offer a range of initiatives to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples who dream of studying with us, including our pre-tertiary outreach programadmission pathways and scholarships and other financial support.   

Our services and facilities also include study spaces, academic workshops, ongoing tuition and accommodation support, as well as mentoring and other networks for new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students settling into university life.

Cultural competence is a major priority in our 2016-20 Strategy as we strive to make Sydney a truly inclusive, culturally diverse and distinctively Australian university where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are part of our identity.
