Study opportunities

Entry pathways

Indigenous Australian peoples can enter ECU using two specialised entry pathways, in addition to ECU's other pathway options.

Indigenous Student Intake Test (ISIT)

The test is a culturally appropriate assessment of skills and knowledge which facilitates the fast tracking of Indigenous students into a bridging or undergraduate course.

Indigenous University Orientation Course

The course provides a pathway for Indigenous Australian students to enter into most ECU undergraduate courses. Students develop the academic skills and the cultural understandings of university necessary to succeed in higher education. Entry into some undergraduate programs may require additional extension studies and processes of negotiation.

You can find out more about these entry pathways by first selecting your student type:

Indigenous specific courses

Kurongkurl Katitjin offers a range of units embedded into courses designed to not only create new ways of learning and working in an inclusive Australia, but also provide students with the skills and abilities they need to work in the community and actively promote a positive sense of Indigenous identity, culture and heritage.

Courses cover topics such as Indigenous health; community management and leadership; and culture. Further information on the full range of courses on offer can be found on the Future Students web page.
