Support from fellow students
Enjoy seamless interactive collaboration with your
peers, tutors and lecturers. You can jump into forums,
join discussion boards and chat online with your fellow
students – any time of the day or night. Don’t be
surprised when you make new online study buddies
after the kids are in bed, or in the wee hours before
work starts – you won’t be alone!
Plus, your units may have access to Peer Assisted Study
Sessions (PASS). These are group study sessions run
by students who successfully completed your units,
so they’ll have top tips and know exactly what you’re
going through.

Smaller class sizes and supportive
lecturers
Our lecturers have been delivering distance and online
learning for many years, so they understand your needs
and have the learning tools, resources and support they
need to deliver flexible, fully accredited online degrees.
Importantly, because CDU also has small class sizes,
lecturers and tutors give you the attention and support
you need. You can be assured they’ll work hard to get to
know you and support your study goals.

                     CDU has 30 years'
            experience in online and
            distance learning and we
             are experts in delivering
          quality learning beyond the
                traditional classroom.

Application FAQs
            What is the difference between
            applying and enrolling?
      Applying is the first step you need to take to gain a place
      in a Higher Education course. Once you have received
      an offer for admission into a course, you will receive
      information on enrolling in your course and units.

            When do I need to apply?
      The application closing dates change from year to year,
      depending on the start date of each semester. Generally
      you can apply right up to the week before classes start,
      but don’t leave it to the last minute! You should apply at
      least by the SATAC or UAC cut-off dates to give yourself
      the best chance and to allow time for your application to
      be processed and for you to enrol in your classes.

            Do I have to pay an application fee
            when I apply for a course?
      If you are applying to study with CDU through SATAC or
      UAC you will be required to pay an application fee.

            Who can apply for a scholarship?
      Scholarships are not only for high achievers. Anyone who
      is studying at CDU can apply for a scholarship as long as
      you meet the scholarship’s eligibility criteria.

            How do I apply for credit transfer?
      Applying for credit towards a CDU course can only
      be requested once you have applied for a course and
      accepted an offer to study with us. Once you accept an
      offer, complete the application for Credit Transfer and
      supply the required documentation.

          DURATION – 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

          DOMESTIC INTAKE – Semester 1, Semester 2

     ABOUT THE COURSE
 Want to base your research on Australian Indigenous knowledge?
 Ready to make a positive change for both Indigenous and non-
 Indigenous Australians through collaborative research?
 The Diploma of Indigenous Research is an opportunity for you to
 build on the profound depth of research knowledge that already
 exists with the traditions of Indigenous people within Australia.
 Indigenous people have extensive experience in research, both
 as participants and leaders of research initiated within and by
 universities and other agencies, but also as leaders of research
 work based within the knowledge foundations of their own
 cultural and philosophical traditions.
 This course focuses on promoting knowledge and cultural
 tradition research in Indigenous groups and its positive
 contributions to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous society.
 It also aims to open the knowledge-making spaces between
 the western academy and Indigenous knowledge academies to
 explore new and generative research methodologies that can
 emerge from genuine and equal collaboration.
 This course targets Indigenous students, however, non-Indigenous
 students with suitable experience may apply.

     CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
 You will graduate with the knowledge and skills that are useful
 for research within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contexts,
 organisations and communities, government departments and
 agencies or private agencies and organisations that are involved in
 Indigenous research.
