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.
You can take part in the program either full-time for one semester or its part-time equivalent. Under a full-time load you’ll study:
- two foundation units: Foundation Study Skills and Foundation Communications
- one or two regular university units of your choice, which count towards your degree.
The program is delivered through UC College in close collaboration with the Ngunnawal Centre.
