Tarrkarri Tirrka (Future Learning) education strategy outlines our aim to become a leader of excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.
The Tarrkarri Tirrka (Future Learning), The University of Adelaide integrated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education strategy was initially launched on Monday 18th November, 2013. Now, at the strategy's midpoint and to coincide with the release of the University's Reconciliation Action Plan (2019), the Tarrkarri Tirrka has been reviewed and updated to ensure focus and continued excellence for the next five years.
The Taplin Indigenous Bursary for International Education has been established to assist indigenous students and staff at the University to undertake study programs with other First Nations peoples in countries like Canada and New Zealand.
