While studying at UWA, there are many opportunities for Indigenous students to become involved in university life, e.g by living at one of the residential colleges, participating in interfaculty sport, and joining sporting and social clubs.   The School of Indigenous Studies encourages students to take up the opportunity of invaluable work experience through internships, clerkships with law firms and land councils, cadetships and vacation employment. Our students also take up opportunities to attend and actively participate in a range of conferences.  

College Experience
