Compulsory Module

Indigenous Australian Voices - an introduction.

Monash University recognises that its Australian campuses are located on the unceded lands of the people of the Kulin Nations, and pays its respect to their elders, past and present.

Indigenous Australian Voices is an introductory module which provides Monash students and staff with an opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia. You will be introduced to the rich and complex histories of First Nations Peoples and the lands on which we study, work and live.

Indigenous Australian Voices is part of a suite of compulsory modules (including Academic Integrity and Respect at Monash) designed to ensure students fully understand Monash values.

We hope that by completing this module, it will be the beginning of your desire to learn more, and to contribute to a society that respects Australia’s Indigenous Peoples, cultures and knowledges, and works towards addressing the legacies of the past.

When do I need to complete this module?

You should complete the compulsory modules before classes start, but we’ll send you a reminder (with a deadline) if you haven’t completed them. If you don’t complete them by the deadline, you’ll lose access to Moodle until they are completed.

Record of completion

Compulsory modules are not graded, so your grade will remain 0% even after completion. But, once you’ve completed the module, your progress will show as 100% on the CUP dashboard.

Using your student email account: Best to log into CUP with your Monash student email account. That way your record of completion will also appear in WES (after about 15 minutes).

Using your personal email account: If you log into CUP with your personal email account (or an MRS account), your record of completion won’t automatically appear in WES. You’ll need to request that we merge your personal CUP account with your Monash student account by emailing with the subject line CUP merge required.

You can check which email address is linked to your account by looking under the profile icon in the top left corner of CUP.

What happens if I don’t complete the module?

If you don’t complete compulsory modules by the deadline, you'll lose access to Moodle until the modules are completed. So make sure you complete them on time.

If you have accessibility requirements

Some students with a vision impairment or other disability may not be able to complete the module. We're currently working to enhance the accessibility of the module so all students can complete it with ease. In the meantime, please reach out to Disability Support Services for support, to be sure you complete the module by the deadline.
