This presentation is based on a study of the experiences of Australian Indigenous students enrolled at a joint education development in the year 2000. Initially it is useful to place the student experiences in context, by briefly outlining the structure of the joint development and how it came about. Secondly. it is necessary to look at what has been established in terms of the needs of Indigenous students in a tertiary education selling. Then, it is possible to examine the experiences articulated by students and come to some conclusions as to whether or not this joint education development is effectively addressing the needs of its Indigenous students and in fact, the education needs of the local Indigenous Community. Of course, we all know that the answer lies within the Indigenous student experience.
