Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander student communities

Each ACU campus has its own hub for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Indigenous Higher Education Units

The Indigenous Higher Education Units are welcoming, culturally safe and supportive places. You can meet Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff, make friends and get information, advice and support on a wide range of academic, cultural and personal matters to help enrich your university life.

Tutorial assistance

If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander student there is free academic tutorial assistance available to you. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your study outcomes at ACU.

Away From Base program

Away from Base is a program that allows you to live, work and study in your own community, and visit ACU's Brisbane or Strathfield campus for four weeks a year for face-to-face course lectures. If you are studying in Away From Base mode you need to make sure you are ready for your on-campus residential weeks.
