Abstract

This article will report on the recommendations from a study that investigated what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students said affected their social and emotional wellbeing. The study interviewed students from seven different universities and utilised thematic analysis to determine what the factors were. As a result, a number of strategies became apparent that could be implemented to optimise Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander students' social and emotional wellbeing whilst at university, and not only make the experience more positive but also facilitate their progression and completion.
