Riawunna Centre

Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme

The ITAS program provides supplementary tuition to support eligible Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students studying university award level courses.

Tutoring is available for up to two hours per week per subject, and up to five additional hours in total during examination preparation breaks. Tutors are chosen for their expertise in their fields of study and for their demonstrated Cultural sensitivity. Most are post-graduates and leaders in their field of study.

Once students are matched to a tutor for their subject they then can arrange to meet weekly for tutoring sessions. Tutoring spaces are available in the Riawunna Centre on the Hobart and Launceston campuses.
