Indigenous students explore uni
We encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to explore their post-school options and gain access to higher education.
Our Indigenous Australian Science and Infrastructure Development School is a fully supervised five-day residential camp designed to inspire Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Year 10, 11 and 12 to consider higher education studies.
The camp is designed to break down myths and barriers around attending university and to build aspirations. The camp is held in Brisbane and all participants stay in safe and secure accommodation.
At the Science and Infrastructure Development School participants will meet current QUT students who did not consider university as an option for them. Participants will also have the opportunity to:
- experience university campus life
- visit 'real-world' work sites and meet industry professionals
- participate in interactive university faculty activities
- make new friends also considering university study
- do much more!
Who should attend the school?
Year 10, 11 and 12 students who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent should apply. The camp is free for participant students. All travel, meals, accommodation and activities are covered aswell.
