Become immersed in Nyungar country

The Centre for Aboriginal Studies is offering students from all courses the exciting opportunity to examine significant historical, cultural and contemporary issues that have shaped and continue to shape the lives of Nyungar people.

The Nyungar On-Country unit is available in the mid-semester break, starting on Monday 11 July. If you study this unit, you'll visit historical sites in the Perth metropolitan region and the town of York, and take part in tutorials focusing on Nyungar perspectives past and present.

Say Hello to Online Print Recharge

The University is pleased to announce that it has moved to a new online recharge model for student printing that will be accessible through OASIS.

Online recharge will replace the current use of aging coin and note or EFTPOS machines situated around campus. The online model means that you will be able to recharge your account faster and from anywhere with an internet connection.

Please note, there will be some coin and note machines remaining at strategic points on Bentley campus to ease transition.

Students and staff can access more information about the new online recharge system on the OASIS help webpage.
