If you’re a First Nations student, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation Program can help you build the communication and study skills you’ll need to undertake a degree at the University of Canberra.
The program also provides an alternative entry pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to study at UC if you don’t currently meet the university’s admission requirements.
This pathways program is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who have either recently finished Year 12 or who graduated from Year 12 a while ago. To be eligible for entry, you’ll need to have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification or equivalent, with passes in three academic subjects.
To participate in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation Program you’ll need to:
- complete the online application form at UC’s online application portal
- upload all relevant certified documentation, such as your birth certificate or Australian passport, and academic transcripts, as requested on the form
- contact the Ngunnawal Centre or UC College to organise a time for an informal interview.
As part of your application, we’ll look at your current academic record and also your likelihood for success in university-level study.
