Research students

Being a research student at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies provides you with the unique opportunity to contribute to Indigenous knowledge.

We offer an Honours program by Research that aim to extend your research skills and help you discover more about areas of Indigenous studies that truly fascinate you.

If you'd like to study to be a researcher with the Centre for Aboriginal Studies, you can contact our Graduate Studies Coordinator on (08) 9266 7091.

Success of our Honours Program

The Honours program in 2015 produced three graduates with grades who are now able to enter doctoral programs. This means that they will not need to finish a Masters degree but will go onto research larger projects for a PhD qualification. Nationally, on average, only seven Indigenous people attain a doctoral degree. The Centre for Aboriginal Studies proudly hopes to increase that number into the future. />
