Future Research Candidates


The Institute is known for offering a culturally safe research training environment and for advancing the aspirations of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples across Australia. Our Graduate School is focused on providing research candidates with a unique experience that reflects a robust Indigenous approach to advanced learning and research practice. At the centre of the research training programs is a recognition of the richness and diversity of Indigenous perspectives, ontologies, epistemologies and methodological approaches. Candidates will be supported to create a project that aligns with Indigenous peoples’ knowledges, experiences and ways of working.

Master classes are held regularly and can be attended on campus or online. Other professional development opportunities are tailored to individual candidate’s needs and requirements. The Institute recognises that accountabilities to communities are fundamental to the production of high quality research. As such, development of high level communication and engagement skills are a focus of learning throughout candidature.
