Centre for Aboriginal Studies

This honours course provides specialised training for graduates in research in Indigenous Australian contexts. A combination of coursework and a research project provides honours students with training and experience in research positioning, research methodologies and methods and in using research literature critically.

This honours course can be taken full-time over one year or part-time over two years. The course is delivered by Block release, with students attending four Study Blocks over the course of each year. This is supplemented by Reverse Block visits each semester by Centre for Aboriginal Studies lecturers.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.

Fees (indicative first year only):

Year Student type Cost
2016 Commonwealth supported What is a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)?
A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government. They pay part of the course fees directly to Curtin and then the student pays the remainder. The student can defer this fee to their HECS-HELP loan.

All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.

Learn more about CSPs and whether you're eligible by visiting the Australian Government's StudyAssist website.

*The indicative first-year fee is calculated on 200 credit points, which is the typical full-time study load per year, however some courses require additional study to be completed, in which case the fee will be higher than that shown.

This fee is a guide only. It may vary depending on the units you choose and do not include incidental fees (such as lab coats or art supplies) or the cost of your textbooks - visit other fees and charges for more information. For more information on fees and to determine your eligibility for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP, please visit fee basics or the Study Assist website
