Alternative Entry for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

Oorala Aboriginal Centre offers two programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who would like to apply for admission to UNE undergraduate courses:

Internal Selection Program (ISP) is a one-day testing and assessment program which focuses on each participant's study skills and career goals. Following an interview, participants are recommended for admission to either UNE courses or TRACKS (see below) and advised on suitable alternatives for study in their chosen field.

TRACKS Tertiary Preparation Program (TRACKS) is an enabling course which prepares you for university study and supports you to make informed choices about applying for a UNE undergraduate course. Be part of a community of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who share your goals and interests! TRACKS is designed to assist students with the development of study skills and the transition to mainstream university courses.  TRACKS offers on campus or online study.
