Getting into UTS

Indigenous entry schemes and pathways

Jumbunna was one of the first units created in a NSW university for the support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

We have a long history of enabling students to achieve academic and personal success in their studies and careers.

That's why we have developed three dedicated pathway programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
