What university is like

Curtin is a place that will inspire you. You’ll have more freedom than you do at school; you can focus on your interests and tailor your schedule to suit your lifestyle.

Graduate career-ready

At Curtin, you will have valuable opportunities for professional learning through industry placements, fieldwork and working with real clients. You’ll find your classes interactive and practical and you will benefit from our connections with industry, and develop skills in time management, team work and goal setting.

Our campuses are a popular study destination and Curtin is globally recognised for its strong connections with industry, high-impact research and a wide range of innovative courses. You can get involved in mentoring programs, voluntary work and industry placements to help you gain the knowledge and skills employers look for.

Campus life at Curtin

Make new friends, get involved in clubs and activities, build life skills and prepare for the transition into working life. The Perth campus is a place of inspiration and innovation. With technology-rich learning spaces and many opportunities to meet new people, your experiences in Curtin’s welcoming, multicultural environment can change your life.

Part of a greater Curtin

In line with the continued developments in Perth, we have plans to transform Curtin’s main campus into a cultural hub, connecting you with the broader community in collaborative and enriching new ways. Exciting initiatives such as pop-up food vans and our outdoor cinema are already transforming campus life. The sense of community is strengthening within the classroom too, with innovative new learning spaces that promote collaboration.

Diversity and faith

At Curtin, we respect and support all students, irrespective of culture, religion, gender, sexuality or disabilities. To help you explore and practise the religious faith of your choice, Curtin has a multi-faith officer as well as prayer rooms that are reserved for spiritual or religious purposes.


Studentbox is our online community especially for Western Australian year 10, 11 and 12s that provides help, support, study resources and tools to help you through high school and into uni.
