Study Abroad

The Study Abroad program allows you to study at a Curtin campus for one or two semesters. You can apply to Curtin as a study abroad student if you are attending any recognised education institution in a country outside of Australia. Study Abroad is also open to students enrolled at one of Curtin’s partner institutions as an alternative to student exchange. Applications are open all year round.

As a Study Abroad student, you are responsible for meeting all costs associated with your study including tuition, accommodation, living expenses, travel, visa costs and compulsory health insurance.

Application closing dates*

Semester 1 2023 – 15 October 2022
Semester 2 2023 – 15 April 2023

*Acceptance of late applications MAY be considered dependent on application and visa processing times

Choose your course (units)

Curtin offers more than 100 courses in applied, practical subjects with a strong emphasis on industry links and international, cultural and Indigenous awareness. You can also get involved in volunteer programs to help you gain skills employers look for.

Entry requirements

You must meet Curtin University’s admission standards, including unit prerequisites and English language requirements as all courses are taught in English.
If you don’t have the required level of English proficiency, you could apply to enrol in a Curtin English program to help you improve your English language skills.

How to apply


During your study abroad, your tuition fees are paid directly to Curtin instead of your home university.

You are also responsible for covering any costs associated with your Study Abroad, including accommodation, living expenses, airfares and other travel expenses, your Australian student visa and compulsory Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

The 2023 study abroad tuition fee is AUD$10,400 per semester*.
