Important Information

If you are selected as a Study Assistant you may be required to complete Cultural Awareness Training and ACU's Online Module on Working with Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults. Payment for these sessions will be received after completion.

Completion of this registration form does not guarantee employment as a Study Assistant.

Casual Tutorial Assistance Contracts are based on the academic requirements of the students and therefore Australian Catholic University or First Peoples Directorate cannot guarantee any/or future contracts.

The Student Support Officer of the student’s Indigenous Higher Education Unit will contact you when a suitable student has been matched to your areas of expertise.

No arrangements can be entered into by the student and the study assistant until an official contract has been issued.


I declare the information provided by me in the Study Assistant Registration form is true, complete and correct.

Part 7 Indigenous Student Assistance Grants Guidelines 2017 (Commonwealth Government), Explanatory Statement, “Subclause 37(3) stipulates that where a higher education provider requires a person to apply for assistance or enter into a written agreement with the provider, the provider must not provide the assistance or make the payment using an ISSP grant unless the person has signed a form prepared by the provider in which the person acknowledges that:

  • giving false or misleading information is a serious offence; and
  • the person may incur a debt to the Commonwealth or the provider or both if the person receives assistance or payment that the person should not have received; and
  • the provider may collect personal information of the person and share that information with the Commonwealth for the purposes of the Commonwealth administering these Guidelines.

The purpose of this provision is to ensure that an Indigenous student applying for assistance or a person entering into a written agreement with a higher education provider is aware of the implications of other Commonwealth laws.
