Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

At Curtin, Indigenous students are supported and encouraged to take control of their own learning with an enduring sense of belonging, autonomy and strength.

Our courses

Our bridging, undergraduate and postgraduate courses explore and build on Indigenous knowledge and ideas.

Enabling courses

If you’re of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent and you haven’t met Curtin’s entry requirements, our enabling courses are tailored to help you gain entry into the course you want.


The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS) provides private tutorial assistance to Indigenous students enrolled in an undergraduate degree.

How to apply

It’s easy to apply for a course at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies (CAS).
