Wuyagiba Regional Study Hub

Educating remote Aboriginal leaders of tomorrow

 

WE’RE PROPOSING A TWO-WAY UNIVERSITY PROGRAM 'OUT BUSH'

At Wuyagiba, In South East Arnhem land, Northern Territory

Two-way learning means learning and exchange of non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal knowledge. Our initial focus will be two-way courses for local Aboriginal students. In the longer term, we could offer courses to people from outside the region. 

Wuyagiba is an small homeland located between the main Aboriginal communities of south east Arnhem Land, Ngukurr and Numbulwar.  

We want to do this at the highest level – university level.


THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN AUSTRALIA

Wuyagiba Regional Study Hub will invite experts to teach University level subjects on-country. In 2018 we want to trial a two-way, six week Tertiary Preparation Course.

 

BACKED BY THE COMMUNITY

The Wuyagiba Regional Study Hub has widespread support from Ngukurr Community.

MAKING THE DREAM A REALITY

We need basic infrastructure and funding for students and staff to stay at the Wuyagiba Study Hub.
