Pathways for Indigenous students

Indigenous students are encouraged to apply through the Principals’ Recommendation Scheme.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are interested in studying at ANU are encouraged to contact the Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre for more information.

The University will offer early entry to Indigenous students from any Australian secondary school, based on the recommendation of the school principal, but conditional on the student gaining a minimum Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 70 or equivalent.

How to apply

To apply, please follow the steps in the Principals’ Recommendation Scheme advisory page listed above.

Applicants must also apply for a place in their intended ANU program following the normal domestic undergraduate application process described on the advisory page listed above, with their ANU preference being the highest eligible preference.
