Student Testimonials

I knew I wanted to come to university when I was in high school, but I wasn't sure if I would be able to achieve it.  When I found out abut the pathways available through Yunggorendi I finally decided to apply to Flinders University.  I have always had a passion for electronics, design and understanding how things work, so a career in Engineering was an obvious choice for me.  It has allowed me to increase my knowledge and skills in these areas.  It has also helped me improve my self-confidence.

Kieran Carter, Bachelor of Engineering


The staff at Yunggorendi and Flinders helped me into my course and guided me through knowing I could do it.  Don't ever be afraid to ask for help!  Don't leave it too late, but know you can do it any any time.  My advice to Indigenous students at uni is:  access Yunggorendi and use their services!  it would be so much harder if i didn't have them.
