At Marr Mooditj, 13% of our students enrolled are coming to study from remote locations.
We understand the importance of providing a welcoming and home like environment for our students as they study and so have created travel and accommodation support to make the transition smooth from country to city.
Travel and Accommodation support is provided to remote students under the guidelines of Away from Base (AFB). Each remote student (who must be Abstudy approved) receives assistance with their travel costs, accommodation costs and meals for the duration of each study block.
City life may not be for everyone but many remote students the knowledge the experience they gain from Marr Mooditj is worth it, as they can take extra care of their families and their community and also assist them to find employment when they graduate and return home.
Many of the students are away from home for 2-3 weeks at a time and this can impact students, as they can get homesick, especially when they have young children back home.
