Billibellary's Walk

Wominjeka. Welcome to Wurundjeri Country

Billibellary's Walk is named after the Ngurungaeta, or clan head, of the Wurundjeri people at the time of Melbourne’s settlement. The walk is a cultural interpretation of the University’s Parkville campus landscape that provides an experience of connection to Country which Wurundjeri people continue to have, both physically and spiritually.

Graduate Programs in Indigenous Research

For over 10 years at the University of Melbourne, we have hosted a Summer School for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research students. Research higher degree students have come from all over Australia to take part in our highly-regarded one-week intensive program.

Working together as a cohort, students develop a wide range of research skills in a culturally respectful learning environment underpinned by Indigenous perspectives. This program is fully recognised as an Award course of the University of Melbourne - the Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research.
