Students need to demonstrate specific skills and attributes to be considered for acceptance into undergraduate study. In particular, academic conventions are critical. This course is the final IHEP core course and focuses on bringing together all the relevant academic skills necessary for successful undergraduate study. This course now names the pedagogy of the other courses as Indigenous Research Methodologies, how we find out and apply information as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Therefore this course consolidates the foundations delivered within the IHEP program to equip the students with a grounded philosophy around how to be a successful Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander student within Higher Education.

Using a combination of regulated online instruction and face to face tutoring, the course will provide students with skills and knowledge in relation to academic conventions, discipline-specific language and theory, and intellectual property (IP) issues for Aboriginal peoples. The course will include research practice into discipline areas and the creation of a word list and theoretical framework for entrance into university.
