Tranby receives funding from the Federal Government to support Indigenous non-NSW residents and from the NSW Government to support Indigenous NSW residents. This means that you do not need to pay tuition fees or travel and accommodation expenses if you live outside Sydney and are eligible for subsidised travel and accommodation. The availability of ABSTUDY support is based on individual circumstances.

Course Delivery

Tranby’s student support team is here for you on your learning journey. The team includes your trainer for academic support, dedicated IT support and Student Services for general assistance. You can also book time with one of Tranby’s Elders is Residence for cultural support and connection.

The course is divided into five consecutive study blocks with their associated assessments such as virtual meetings, case studies, written reports and short answer questions. Each study block runs for approximately two months and is followed by a study break of about two weeks. The entire course runs over a one-year duration.

Students can work through the study blocks at their own pace but must submit their assessments by the due dates. The study load is typically 20-25 hours per week during study blocks.
