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 to us 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 2020.

At Curtin, we understand that your future career begins now, when you start your degree. Our commitment is to build the skilled and work-ready workforces of tomorrow today. We do this through 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 leadership programmes, internships, clinical placements and other embedded industry learning all give our students a competitive edge and bring them one step closer to making tomorrow better.

Outside of the classroom, one of our favourite things about the campus is the attention to detail the University pays to creating comfortable, vibrant spaces and amazing facilities for our students – from Kip, an electric autonomous bus to chill-out zones, like our 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 their culture is always embraced and diversity is celebrated wholeheartedly.
