Curtin University is a global university with campuses in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and Mauritius. When you join Curtin Singapore, you join an international family. Around half of our students come from a country outside of Singapore, which adds a valuable dimension to your university experience, both in and out of the classroom.
The Singapore campus is located in the heart of Singapore city, and offers you a comprehensive and safe study environment. Curtin Singapore offers a starting point for everyone, delivering a range of pathway diploma, undergraduate, postgraduate, study abroad and English language courses.
Curtin University is globally recognised for its strong connections with industry, high-impact research and wide range of innovative courses.
Our strong global reputation has seen us rise up the international university rankings in recent years. We’re now ranked in the top one per cent of universities worldwide in the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities 2019, and has risen to 230th in the world in the 2019-20 QS World University Rankings.
We are also ranked 21st globally and 4th in Australia for universities under the age of 50 in the QS World University Rankings 2020, and received a ﬁve-star overall excellence rating by the QS Stars rating.
You can tailor your studies to your own needs with opportunities to transfer between Curtin University campuses. The courses offered in Singapore are identical to those offered in Perth, as are all aspects of the programs, from the curriculum to the calibre of academic staff.
Courses offered at Curtin Singapore are delivered on a trimester system with intakes in February, July and November, allowing you to complete your program in a shorter period of time.
Our smaller class sizes 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
- Enabling the best opportunity for you to achieve your highest academic results and meaningful cross-cultural experiences.
The Curtin Singapore Pro Vice-Chancellor and President oversees all academic aspects of the campus, including our approach to teaching and learning. The Pro Vice-Chancellor and President also develops opportunities for strengthening involvement between industry and the Singapore campus.
