Academic Support

We want you to succeed and get the most out of your degree. Support from the Yulendj Unit includes:

Books

Yulendj provides a book allowance for all Indigenous students to get their prescribed texts, and other essentials that may be required, like lab coats and stethoscopes.

We provide these fundamental things so you are fully equipped to focus on your studies.

Tutoring

The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS) is available to current Indigenous students in the form of two hours of on-to-one or group tutoring per unit, per week. Leading into exams you may receive an extra five hours of tutorial assistance.

Our tutors have studied the units you are studying, to ensure you are receiving tailored support.

Tutoring is a valuable resource and we encourage all students to sign-up for ITAS; it could mean the difference between a Distinction and a High Distinction!

Complete and return the student registration form (PDF, 0.18 MB) to request a tutor.

Register as a tutor

If you are interested in tutoring Indigenous students please complete the tutor registration form (PDF, 0.15 MB) and return it to the Yulendj at 10 Ancora Imparo Way, Clayton campus, or email it to adm-yulendj@monash.edu.

Other support

We can organise study skills sessions in areas like academic writing, using the library and preparing for exams.

Our Elder in Residence, Aunty Diane Singh, provides support to students wanting to make connections with the local community, or wanting to find out more about their own family history and connections. You can contact Aunty Diane at diane.singh@monash.edu or 9905 4204.
