Don't miss an opportunity to attend the Study Tour!
The Study Tour takes place from around mid-October to the end of November each year, taking Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander university students and graduates to visit leading universities in the US and the UK.
The group of successful Study Tour applicants will spend approximately 3 weeks in the US visiting Berkeley, Stanford, Columbia, NYU and Harvard, and approximately 10 days in the UK at Cambridge, Oxford, London School of Business, and the London School of Economics.
The Study Tour not only offers invaluable opportunities for students to gain insight into the realities of undertaking postgraduate study at these leading institutions but also provides the opportunity to travel with a group of like-minded students. The Study Tour involves meetings with key academics and administrators at each university, as well as current students in the areas of the participants' interest.
It is possible to join for one, or both, parts of the tour. Costs associated with travel, accommodation and meals are covered.

Every step in the process of the Study Tour put me out of my comfort zone... It was a journey of massive self-growth for me... I told myself to embrace the unknown and the discomfort. I reminded myself, Aurora has selected me, I'm meant to be here and I even made a speech at an event. Now, when I'm feeling unsure about myself, I think about that night... 'I can do this' was my mantra.
The Study Tour is so important because we had these preconceived ideas of where and what we'll want to study but then you go there and realise there are so many opportunities out there for you... like I England would be too cold but now Cambridge is my top choice because of the way they structure the course.
