Flexible entry options
Courses at Curtin are as flexible and individual as the students who study them. If you don’t automatically qualify for university entry, you can enrol in one of our certificate and diploma programs. We also recognise previous studies and work experience, enabling you to take advantage of the relevant prior learning you may have acquired.
Fast-track with trimester academic calendar
We operate on a trimester system with intakes in March, July and November allowing you to complete your degree in a shorter period of time.
Small class sizes
Our smaller classes ensure a supportive learning environment for all students. Lectures have a maximum of 80 students, in comparison to most Australian universities which average 200 to 300 students in their first year. A better learning environment is encouraged by:
- Increasing interaction between you and the lecturer
- Maximising interaction between students
- Ensuring that personal attention is given to each student
- Allowing lecturers to identify and assist students who need extra help
- Facilitating your highest academic achievements and cross-cultural experiences.
The Curtin Singapore campus is located 10 minutes from the central business district with direct bus routes from the campus to three different Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train stations. Singapore’s public transport system provides efficient, affordable and reliable transport to all parts of the island city.
An ideal learning environment would not be complete without high-quality facilities. You will have access to specially developed facilities with the latest audiovisual teaching equipment and first class computer technology with electronic and extended library services. A prayer room is also available on campus for your use.
The Pro Vice-Chancellor lives in Singapore and oversees all academic aspects of the campus, which includes our approach to teaching and learning. The Pro Vice-Chancellor also develops opportunities for strengthening industry involvement with the Singapore campus.
