Course Description

The Bachelor of Arts (Extended) is a course for motivated and aspiring Indigenous students who have not obtained the results for direct entry into the Bachelor of Arts. Students who receive an ATAR score of more than 50 are encouraged to apply. The Bachelor of Arts (Extended) is a four-year program that aims to build a strong foundation for success across a range of disciplines.

The course facilitates a supported transition to University through the provision of an additional study year specifically designed to develop appropriate academic skills for success at University. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students will access specialised academic support through foundation studies in key areas such as academic literacy, communication and performance, literature, philosophy and environmental studies. These subjects will be taught by the Trinity College Foundation Studies program in co-operation with staff from the Faculty of Arts.

Once students have completed the first year of the Bachelor of Arts (Extended), they will move into a standard Bachelor of Arts course structure and choose units depending on the desired career path. There are over 30 disciplines to choose from and these include Australian Indigenous studies, history, psychology, languages, criminology and many more. For more information please visit the majors web page.

In addition, students will be supported through the Murrup Barak centre, as well as living in one of the colleges affiliated with the University of Melbourne.
