Indigenous Student Support

The Indigenous Student Services team in the Moondani Toombadool Centre supports Indigenous students, including on-campus, online and community learners, to be in control of their own studies. Students can receive assistance with pre-enrolment, subject selection, orientation and graduation as well as plans for life after studying. We ensure students’ education and training experience is positive, inclusive and successful.

Swinburne provides tutorial support to Indigenous students enrolled in higher education studies. Tutorial support can be also arranged for students enrolled in formal vocational education and training (PAVE). To find out more about tutoring support, please contact our Indigenous Engagement team.
