Inherent requirements

Curtin welcomes and strongly supports all students in their pursuit of higher education. Our inherent requirements are necessary for successful completion of a course or component, and are inherent to the achievement and demonstration of its learning outcomes.

Enabling access for students

Curtin embraces diversity and is committed to enabling students with the access and ability to participate in further education by eliminating unlawful discrimination and providing reasonable adjustments where needed.

Make an informed decision

Curtin is committed to ensuring that prospective and current students are advised of any inherent requirements before undertaking a course or component of a course, to assist them in making an informed decision about whether a particular course is suitable for them.
