With campuses in Western Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and Mauritius, Curtin is a truly global university that celebrates diverse ideas, skills and cultures. Around a quarter of our students come from a country outside Australia, which will help shape your perspective of the world both in and out of the classroom.

Curtin’s growing international reputation has seen it rise steadily in world university rankings in recent years. Curtin was ranked in the top one per cent of universities worldwide by the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) in 2019.

At Curtin, we understand that your future career begins when you start your degree. We aim to build the skilled workforce of tomorrow, using work-integrated learning experiences reinforced by our strong connections with industry both in Australia and overseas, including partners like CISCO, who run the Innovation Central collaboration centre on campus in collaboration with Curtin University, Woodside Energy and CSIRO’s Data61.

Access to internships, leadership programmes, clinical placements and other embedded industry learning all gives our students a competitive edge and brings them a step closer to making tomorrow better. 

Outside of the classroom, one of our favourite things about campus is the attention to detail Curtin pays to creating comfortable, vibrant spaces and amazing facilities for students. These range from Kip, an electric autonomous bus to chill-out zones like the Hammock Hotels to the super-popular food trucks that serve up a whole range of international cuisines right here on campus. There’s something for everybody and our students love that diversity is celebrated so wholeheartedly.
