At UNE, Indigenous students are guided by a small community of experts throughout their study. This means support right from the start with flexible entry options and study preparation programs.

You’ve always believed you’re capable. You just needed to find someone that values your culture and walks beside you to help you achieve your goals.

Our Entry Programs

TRACKS Tertiary Preparation Course

TRACKS is a tertiary preparation course (Foundation Studies) run by the Oorala Aboriginal Centre, UNE. Over two trimesters you will experience what uni study is about and learn in a supported environment. Be part of a community of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who share your goals and interests!

Internal Selection Program

The Internal Selection on Program (ISP) is an alternative entry program offered by the Oorala Aboriginal Centre to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people wishing to enrol in higher education at the University of New England.

Units of study

Alongside our alternative entry programs Oorala offers three undergraduate units and one post-graduate unit that include Working with Aboriginal People and Aboriginal Resilience and the Arts. These units are available to study individually or as part of a degree.
