Aboriginal Student Intake Test

The Aboriginal Student Intake Test is a culturally appropriate assessment of skills and knowledge, which facilitates the fast tracking of Aboriginal students into a bridging or undergraduate course at Edith Cowan University.

The ASIT program is administered by Kurongkurl Katitjin and is held four times a year, with two sessions prior to the start of each semester. The dates for ASIT in 2017 are:

  • Semester 1 (A) – Wednesday, 17 January 2018
  • Semester 1 (B) – Wednesday, 24 January 2018
  • Semester 2 (A) – Wednesday, 27 June 2018
  • Semester 2 (B) – Wednesday,  4 July 2018

What happens on the day?

The ASIT runs from approximately 9.00am - 3.00pm, including a brief information session, a test and an informal interview.

The ASIT is held at Kurongkurl Katitjin (Building 15) at Edith Cowan University’s Mount Lawley Campus and can be arranged at South West Campus if preferred. Morning tea and lunch are provided.

ASIT results

  • A passing grade of 60% meets our minimum admission requirements into undergraduate courses.
  • A score of less than 60% may enable you to enter via the Aboriginal University Orientation Course, or another option. In this case, we will talk to you about entry pathway options.

Who is eligible?

To apply, you must identify as an Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and be at least 18 years of age.

If you have a Certificate III (or higher qualification) you don't need to undertake the ASIT. You may be eligible to apply directly to a bridging course like the Aboriginal University Orientation Course, or an undergraduate course.

If you're not sure, please contact us via email or telephone on (61 8) 9370 6689.
