Flexible entry pathways

If you don’t meet our entry requirements, there are still plenty of ways to gain entry to Curtin.

StepUp to Curtin Scheme

StepUp to Curtin is a collaboration of two Alternative Access Schemes, StepUp Entry and StepUp Bonus. Both schemes grant bonus ATAR points based on your circumstances or location, and could help make you eligible for admission into Curtin courses.

Portfolio entry

Alternative entry is available for selected courses for those who can demonstrate equivalence to Curtin’s ATAR entry through the submission of a portfolio that demonstrates evidence of your academic achievements, qualifications and ability.

Please submit your portfolio to gain entry.

Bridging programs

If you have not met Curtin’s entry requirements, Curtin also offers a range of bridging courses which are tailored to suit specific types of students.

Curtin College

Based on the main Bentley campus, Curtin College provides qualifications ranging from pre-university to diploma programs. These qualifications guarantee a place in the second year of the related bachelor degree, subject to meeting progression rules and entry requirements.

TAFE and other AQF qualifications

If you’ve received a qualification from TAFE or another Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) recognised institution, you may meet Curtin’s minimum academic entry requirements and be able to get into university.
