The university has a student-led representative body - the Indigenous Graduate Student Association (IGSA) – who look to support graduate coursework and research students, enable collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and staff and encourage potential future Indigenous graduate students.

Meet our Master of Teaching (Early Childhood & Primary) student: Emily McDonald

Master of Teaching (Early Childhood & Primary) student

After previously studying abroad, Emily is looking forward to seeing where her Master of Teaching (Early Childhood & Primary) will take her. From no experience working with children at all, she feels confidence in going into the classroom, particularly from doing her teacher placement during her studies. She shares, "I am really looking forward to gaining employment as a graduate teacher and continuing to develop my practice. Ideally I would love to work in a setting that has opportunities for me to work across early childhood and primary levels, however, I am open to where teaching might take me. It’s exciting to think of all the different places my career can take me - regional areas, the UK - anywhere really!"
