Indigenous communities

Acknowledgement of Country

ANU acknowledges and celebrates the First Australians on whose traditional lands we live, work and study on. We pay our respects to the elders of the Ngunnawal people past, present and emerging.

The Tjabal Centre

The Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre is described as 'the heart of ANU for Indigenous students', providing a meeting place and support-base for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying at ANU. Centrally located, here you will find Indigenous students and staff strongly committed to improving education outcomes and achieving study and career goals that positively impact our communities.

There are various schemes that offer an alternative entry and pathway to ANU for students that don't meet the minimum score requirements. If you are thinking of studying at ANU or unsure of how to start your journey, contact the Tjabal Centre today. We are here to help you.

The indigenous alumni and friends are encouraged to join the Tjabal Alumni community to help us serve you better.
