Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples can enter ECU using two specialised entry pathways, in addition to ECU's other pathway options.
Aboriginal Student Intake Test (ASIT)
The test is a culturally appropriate assessment of skills and knowledge which facilitates the fast tracking of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students into a bridging or undergraduate course.
Aboriginal University Orientation Course
The course provides a pathway for Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander 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.
Aboriginal 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 Aboriginal identity, culture and heritage.
Courses cover topics such as Aboriginal 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.
