Our Outreach Team work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples considering studying at the University of Melbourne.
We can provide you with further information and advice about applying or provide you with the resources you may need to make a decision about tertiary study. We are also available to schools and organisations that support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
If you are looking for additional help with study options, scholarships, applications and on-campus accommodation or if you are interested in studying at the University, we invite you to contact our Outreach team and they will be in touch.
Murrup Barak and the University provide opportunities for those who may be interested in studying with us to get involved with our community.
Camps are a great way for Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 students to explore their interests and experience what studying at the University is like. We highly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to apply for these camps:
- Victorian Indigenous Engineering Winter School
- Girl Power in Engineering and IT
- Residential Indigenous Science Experience
Yagilaith is an is an opportunity for Year 11 and 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students on an ATAR or IB pathway in any state or territory to experience what studying at The University of Melbourne is like.

Meet us in-person or online
Our Outreach team are available for in-person and virtual visits to discuss higher education options with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We also welcome groups to visit us on-campus. We provide a short presentation about study options and then host a tour of Murrup Barak and the Parkville campus.
If you can't make it to meet us in-person, our Outreach team offer online consults with students, teachers and parents/carers about study options, pathways, VTAC and applications, on-campus accommodation, scholarships and more
Our Outreach team offer tours of the Parkville campus. Alternatively, visitors to campus can download a self-guided walking tour map which provides you with a plotted history of campus architecture and other landscape features. The tour takes about an hour to complete.
Our staff attend a number of events across the country to connect with mob and see if The University of Melbourne may be right for them. If you are hosting an event and would like us to attend, submit an enquiry to our Outreach team.
You can also follow us on Instagram to keep up-to-date on community events we are attending.
The University also hosts various in-person and online events for future students considering studying a course with us. Please visit the future students page for upcoming events.
