  • Parent’s/spouse’s highest education certificate

Student’s Pass approval

When your Student’s Pass is approved, you will receive an In-Principle Approval Letter (IPA) via email. You are strongly advised to make travel arrangement only upon receiving the IPA letter.

If a medical report is required (as stated in the IPA letter), the medical check-up will be facilitated by Curtin Singapore during orientation week.

Student’s Pass collection

Curtin Singapore will arrange transportation to ICA for the collection of the Student’s Pass and a university representative will accompany the students to ICA during orientation week.
