Institute of Koorie Education

Welcome to Country
Deakin wishes to pay respect and acknowledge the traditional ownership of our lands.
The University is committed to acknowledging, building and sustaining respect and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Our aim is to build the capacity of our people through education. We will achieve this through integrity, respect, enjoyment, vibrancy and a strong commitment to teaching, learning and research.
Our history – 30 years of success
Since 1986, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education at Deakin has continued to expand and become more relevant to community members throughout Australia.
The institute’s programs are centred on:
- off-campus Community-Based Delivery
- supported by on-campus intensive study blocks
- complemented by local tutors in community.
This approach to course delivery promotes access and equity for Indigenous Australian students.
It’s created a space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people where they can feel comfortable, where they feel they can talk to other Aboriginal students, where they can have a community space away from their own home.
