Overview of the Fellowship

This Fellowship will engage policymakers and practitioners to investigate how the higher education sector and Department of Education and Training (the Department) can effectively support remote students overcome the barriers impeding university success. It will examine teaching and learning practices; accommodation options; scholarship offerings; transition programs; academic skill development; and specialised support for Indigenous students, to define principles of good practice for practitioners. It will also explore how policy and the associated departmental programs can be informed to support remote students to succeed at university.
