Student Success

The Riawunna Centre works closely with other UTAS Services to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students succeed at university. There are a number of services and resources for you to access.

Riawunna Tutoring Program

Access one-to-one or group tutoring, which can often mean the difference between struggling with your studies and succeeding. Each student is entitled to 2 hours a week per subject.

Drop-In + Riawunna Drop In

Useful advice on how to improve your writing and study skills. Free, friendly and individualised academic assistance for all UTAS students.

The Student Learning Team also delivers Drop-In at the Riawunna Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students.

Riawunna Orientation Program

The Riawunna Centre holds an Orientation Program prior to the start of Semester 1 & 2. This program is a great way to familiarise yourself with the University, meet the Riawunna Team, and assess your academic needs.

Riawunna Centre Study Lab

The Study Lab has up-to-date hardware and we can accommodate students’ different learning needs by installing specialist software.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student Internships

Riawunna aims to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student employability by facilitating Internships, where students gain real-world experience through administrative, research and other employment opportunities.
