The Indigenous Student Services team in the Moondani Toombadool Centre provides services to Indigenous students, including on-campus, online and community learners, to be in control of their own studies.
Indigenous Student Advisers
Our Indigenous Student Advisers can meet you at the Hawthorn, Wantirna or Croydon campus by appointment during office hours on Monday to Friday. You can also email and schedule a call-back at a time that suits you.
Academic skills support
The Indigenous Student Services team provides academic skills support for Indigenous students enrolled in higher education and vocational education.
Indigenous Academic Success Program
All Indigenous students enrolled at Swinburne (including Swinburne Online) are encouraged to apply for the Indigenous Academic Success Program. Eligible students receive two hours of tuition per unit of study per week from qualified tutors to assist with their studies. Additional tuition for exam preparation is also provided. The availability of tuition is based on funding and need. The program is provided free to eligible students.
Learning and Academic Skills (LAS) Advisors
Students can also receive study and academic support by booking an appointment with a Swinburne LAS Advisor. LAS Advisors specialise in helping you to improve your study skills and get better marks on writing essays and reports, as well as making presentations. LAS can also help you develop study and exam strategies and improve your maths and computer skills.
Indigenous Student Lounge
