David Unaipon College of Indigenous Education and Research


Expand your understanding of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia at the vibrant, modern and scholarly David Unaipon College of Indigenous Education and Research.

We proudly embody UniSA’s commitment to Reconciliation and to Indigenous knowledge development, and offer:

  • Study programs: Through the Unaipon School we offer programs in Indigenous and Australian Studies up to PhD level and offer the University’s only Australian History major as part of the new Bachelor of Arts (Indigenous Culture and Australian Society).
  • Support: We facilitate Indigenous student entry into university and provide specialised Indigenous Support Services, including the Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme.
  • Research and consulting: We are a growing and important Indigenous research hub, with an increasing number of PhD students. We facilitate research on topics relating to Indigenous Australia and Indigenous issues within the broader Australian and International context.
  • Policy and planning advice: We have a strong commitment to community engagement and inform regional and national policy impacting on Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia. 

Whether you are a student, researcher or organisation, we encourage you to engage with our College and help build a nation that is more aware of its past and present, in an effort to positively impact our shared future.
