Whilst conducting research into the effects that wellbeing has on the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal students while at university, a number of major themes emerged that were worthy of much further research than I could carry out at the time. Each one of these themes was as complex as the next and gave a picture of what a student’s university experience was like. One such theme which deserves particular attention is that of identity. The notion of identity and skin colour were constantly discussed within interviews and featured as one of the major barriers to wellbeing and that of a good university experience. Conversations with participants centred on their own identity or lack of, and that of finding acceptance and a sense of belonging within the context of a university environment.
