Abstract

On 27 March 2104, the Nulungu Research Institute-led research project entitled Can’t Be What You Can’t See: The Transition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students to Higher Education was officially launched by Mr Rod Little at the 50th anniversary AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference in Canberra. The Nulungu Research Institute is located on the University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA), Broome campus, a dual sector provider offering VET, undergraduate, post graduate and research-based degrees. The campus began, 20 years ago, solely providing VET, and has seen significant numbers of students, both Indigenous and non- Indigenous, articulate from Certificate II and III courses all the way through to post graduate study.
