Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit

The Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit supports Indigenous students and staff in their education and employment aspirations. Yulendj actively recruits Indigenous staff and students, and provides strategic advice to the University on Indigenous matters. Our Elder-in-Residence, Aunty Diane Singh, sits within the Unit, and we provide executive support to the Indigenous Advisory Council. Located on the Clayton campus, Yulendj provides tutorial and study spaces for students, and a multi-purpose lounge.

We help students with:

  • Applying for courses, scholarships and bursaries
  • Advice on prerequisites / entry requirements
  • Tutorials
  • Study resources
  • Computer and internet access
  • Student lounges
  • Finding accommodation
  • Referral to other services

Help for future students

Our recruitment officer attends career and education expos in Victoria and other states. They visit schools and communities to talk to Indigenous students about studying at Monash. For more information please see our schools and community outreach programs page.
