Teaching and learning

We provide an opportunity for Indigenous students to choose from a wide range of courses (subjects) that will be delivered in a culturally appropriate way.

Our courses have been especially developed for Indigenous Australians interested in working with Aboriginal communities or organisations that have close relationships with Aboriginal communities:

Culturally appropriate course delivery often including field trips, guest speakers and hands-on activities are a feature of FedUni courses: Study in small classes at a regional campus with the active support of the FedUni AEC and other Indigenous students.

Flexible study options for many courses

  • Full-time
  • Part-time
  • Online (or a blend of these) from home or on campus in four locations (Mt Helen, Camp Street, Gippsland and Horsham campuses).

We have a long-standing commitment to teaching, learning and research within the area of Indigenous studies. The area is multi-disciplinary and incorporates activities across a range of disciplines.
