Murina Pathway Program

Murina is a preparation program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to equip them with the skills and knowledge to succeed in an undergraduate degree. 

The program is designed to support beginning students in two ways.

  • Firstly, through 'taster' units to familiarise students with the types of teaching and learning they will encounter in degree subjects.
  • Secondly, by providing courses to build study, communication, writing and computer skills in preparation for university study.

To find out more about the Murina Pathway Program download the Murina Information Booklet or contact an Aboriginal Higher Education Officer at the campus closest to you.

Murina students may also enrol in University Preparation Units (UPP) which are taught in small groups and offered to any intending university student to help them build up their study skills.

Special note: 'Murina' means path and has been sourced from, A Word-List of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Languages, by N.J.B. Plomley, Launceston, Foot & Playsted Pty Ltd, 1976, p.373.
