Curtin University is Western Australia’s largest and most culturally diverse university with Australia’s third largest international student population.

Around 60,000 students from more than 130 countries study a Curtin degree, at locations including Perth, Margaret River, Kalgoorlie, Sydney, Malaysia and Singapore. Our cultural diversity adds a rich and valuable dimension to the campus atmosphere, preparing all graduates to live and work effectively in an increasingly global environment.

We offer a range of industry-aligned undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, humanities, health, engineering and related sciences. We also have a long-standing focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and culture, supported by our Centre for Aboriginal Studies.

Curtin is widely recognised for its practical research that is focused on solving timely, real-world problems. In recent years our research activity has grown significantly, driving our rapid rise up the international university rankings.

As a university that never settles, we will continue to develop existing partnerships and establish new ones in areas relevant to our research and teaching.
