Who can apply?

If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person, and will be at least 18 years of age in the year you commence Yapug, you can apply to enter the program. You don't have to meet the requirements for entry to university or have any prior experience. You only need to provide confirmation of Aboriginality, and you're on your way to uni.

To establish your status as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander you will need to complete the Confirmation of Aboriginality and/or Torres Strait Islander Status (PDF, 203 KB) form and submit it with a certified copy of documentation from the following list (PDF, 145 KB).
