Advanced standing for Polytechnic students

Michelle describes her Curtin experience in both Singapore and Perth campus. [1m 50s]

Curtin University has long standing ties with the well-respected polytechnics in Singapore. As such, Curtin recognises the quality of polytechnic students by granting students up to 12 exemptions into Curtin’s programs.

Diploma holders from local Polytechnics can begin their university studies at Curtin Singapore and may be entitled up to 50 per cent credit exemptions, depending on the course units covered from their previous diploma studies.

Gaining credit exemptions will then lower the number of modules they need to study to complete their undergraduate programs, bringing down the tuition fees and duration of study.

If applicants are granted 50 per cent credit exemptions, they may complete their degree in just 1 year full-time study.
