Indigenous students

ANU welcomes and encourages applications from Indigenous Australians. The University has a rich Indigenous community and embraces Indigenous culture on campus.

Indigenous Australians who do not meet the formal requirements for entry to ANU may apply to the University under the Indigenous Australian Admission Scheme (PDF, 66KB).

To be eligible for consideration under the scheme prospective students must:

  • be of Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent;
  • identify as an Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander; and
  • be accepted as such by the community/ies in which he/she has been or is associated.

More information on the scheme, as well as support services available to Indigenous students can be found on the Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre website.
