Aboriginal Tutorial Program


The Aboriginal Tutorial Program (ATP) offers Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students access to ATP Tutors in metropolitan and regional locations, free of cost. ATP Tutors have skills and experience in a wide range of study areas including academic writing, referencing skills, research skills, guidance on assignments and support to develop independent study skills. They are available to help with study and workload demands and to provide support and encouragement to assist with succeeding at university.

Who can access the ATP?

Any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander student enrolled in a pathway, undergraduate or postgraduate program at UniSA is eligible to access ATP support, including UniSA Online and OUA students.
