The Diploma of Indigenous Research is designed for Indigenous students. It offers the opportunity to draw on your own knowledge, heritage and cultural traditions to carry out on-ground research work and learn about ways that research may contribute in positive ways to Indigenous people, places and futures.
If you are new to research, this course offers an introduction to key issues and themes, as well as the opportunity to develop practical skills informed by the place where you live and its law and knowledge.
If you are already exploring your own research projects, the Diploma of Indigenous Research offers supervision and support, as well as the chance to meet other students exploring their own projects in other places.
If you are an experienced researcher, the course offers a way to demonstrate this and be recognised for the skills and practices that are important in your workplace or community and to the people and places with whom you work.
This course includes an on-ground research project where you will be supported to develop your own research work in urban or remote Aboriginal communities. All units in the course are available online and can be carried out in the places where you live and work.
