The School of Indigenous Studies (SIS) at UWA has two upcoming residential camps for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students; the Health & Science Workshop, and the annual Year 12 Seminar.
Health & Science Careers Workshop: 12-15 July 2010
The Health & Science workshop is for students in years 10-12 who are interested in careers in related fields. Students will stay on campus at one of our residential colleges and will be supervised by Indigenous staff. UWA medical students will also assist as supervisors and provide instruction at all activities, as well as by being positive role models for the students.
Numbers are limited, and completed applications must be received no later than 12 June. All costs including travel, meals and accommodation, are covered by UWA.
Year 12 Seminar: 12-15 April 2010
The Year 12 seminar is an annual residential seminar for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Year 12 throughout Western Australia.
The Seminar enables students with academic ability and an interest in studying at university level in Perth, to examine opportunities and options in the company of other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff. The week provides a range of visits, guest speakers, learning seminars and workshops, as well as social and cultural activities.
The Seminar will be held in Perth and all student costs including travel, meals and accommodation are sponsored by UWA. Applications close 26 March and places are limited to 50 students.
UWA offers bridging and other preparatory courses for Indigenous students with ability who for a range of reasons may not have achieved a high enough ATAR for admission through the normal pathway. We are therefore interested in all students with academic ability, who have an interest in attending one of these events.
For more information and application forms for either of these events, please contact Brendon DeGois.
