Have your supporting documents to hand, and ensure they meet our guidelines. The documents may include certified copies of your qualifications, English language proficiency documents and supplementary forms for certain courses.
If your documents are not issued in English, an official translation from a recognised translation service must be provided.
If you have undertaken previous study or work that matches the content of some of your Curtin course units, you may be able to obtain credit for recognised learning, which exempts you from studying those units.
Applying online: Use the ‘Apply now’ button on the relevant course page and following the prompts.
If you want to package your course with a Curtin English course, you can submit your application with your course application documents to streamline the process.
If your application is successful, you will receive an offer that you will need to accept or reject.
If you accept your offer, you will receive a Confirmation of Enrolment – a document from Curtin that details your course, how long you will be studying the course, and the tuition fees. This document can be used for acquiring a student visa.
Apply to the Australian government for your student visa. Gaining a student visa will allow you to participate in full-time study in Australia and work up to 40 hours in a fortnight. If you’re under 18 years of age, you must have approved accommodation and welfare arrangements in place before a visa can be issued.
