The Indigenous Student Support team provides high-level support and assistance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

The team can provide assistance with admissions, academic support, pastoral care, advocacy and referral to mainstream CDU support services.

Pathways and bridging courses

If you don't meet the minimum entry, didn't complete year 12, or haven't studied in a while; we encourage you to enrol in the following entry pathways:

  • Preparation for Tertiary Success (PTS) is a free program designed for Indigenous students wishing to further their studies. PTS can help you develop your skills, knowledge, and give you the confidence to pursue further study.

    Successful completion of PTS will give you the minimum entry requirements for most Diploma and Bachelor programs at the Australian Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Education (ACIKE) and CDU.

  • Tertiary Entrance Program (TEP) is an entry pathway open to all stuents. With TEP, you'll have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to succeed at university.

    You can complete the free course online or on campus, full time or part time, and in as little as 16 weeks you'll meet the requirements to apply for entry to most CDU undergraduate degrees.
