About Curtin University and Scholarship

Why should I enroll at Curtin University? In Western Australia, it tops the list of public institutions for both graduate results and employer satisfaction. It conducts research in a variety of academic and applied areas.

In Bentley, Perth, Western Australia, Curtin University, originally the Curtin University of Technology and Western Australian Institute of Technology (WAIT), is a public research institution. The largest university in Western Australia, which is expected to enroll 59,939 students by 2021, is named for John Curtin, an Australian prime minister from 1941 to 1945.


Following the passage of legislation by the Western Australian Parliament in 1986, Curtin was granted university status. Since then, the institution has grown, now having campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, and Mauritius, as well as connections to 90 other exchange universities in 20 different nations. The institution has 95 expert centers spread throughout its five main faculties. From 2005 until 2016, it had a campus in Sydney.

International students may enroll in the program if they are starting a full undergraduate or master’s degree through coursework at Curtin in Australia. A 25% first-year tuition fee reduction will be given to chosen students.
