At Curtin, students study undergraduate and postgraduate courses within technology-rich learning environments that recreate real workplaces, enhancing their studies and giving them the practical experience they need before they graduate.
They can gain work experience through internships with industry and by working on real-world projects as part of their course. Some students choose to study part of their course in a different country or Curtin campus, adding a global dimension to their degree.
At the Bentley Campus, there is a sense of community both in and out of the classroom, with collaborative learning spaces, outdoor leisure areas and games to enjoy in-between classes. Clubs and societies offer students opportunities to get involved, gain new experiences, meet new friends and add skills to their CV.
Students have access to a number of support services including health services, a childcare service, housing services and additional learning support. Other facilities include a sports centre, an art gallery, a modern library, study spaces, an on-site bookshop, and plenty of food and drink outlets.
