If you are an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student studying at UniSA, Indigenous Student Services (ISS) is here to provide assistance to you.
ISS units, located on all UniSA campuses, offer you a friendly, comfortable and supportive place to study. An Indigenous academic adviser is located in each unit for any help you need or questions you may have. Indigenous students are also there for support.
Programs provided by ISS include the Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme and the university preparation program (for new Indigenous students).
Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme
The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme connects UniSA’s Indigenous students with academic tutors for each of their courses. This service is free of cost.
University preparation for Indigenous students
University preparation sessions (for new Indigenous students) are held before the start of the academic year. The purpose is to provide a solid and comfortable foundation for commencing Indigenous students.
These sessions provide academic and study skills and opportunities to make new friends, develop support networks and understand academic procedures and resources.
ISS is located on all UniSA campuses: City East, City West, Magill, Mawson Lakes and the Centres for Regional Engagement in Whyalla and Mount Gambier. There are also three off-campus centres at Ceduna, Port Augusta and Port Lincoln.
City West campus houses the major ISS unit, located within the David Unaipon College of Indigenous Education and Research (in the Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences).
