Everyone belongs at Curtin

We believe everyone who shares our passion for making tomorrow better should have the chance to study at university, regardless of their background or circumstances.

If you dream of studying towards a degree, but need a little extra support, uni is still for you! Here’s a few reasons why university really can be within reach.

University is affordable

Most domestic uni students hold what’s known as a Commonwealth Supported Place, which reduces your tuition fees and allows you to defer payment for your studies under the HECS-HELP scheme. You may also be eligible for a scholarship and/or financial support through Centrelink.


Most domestic students are eligible to receive HECS-HELP, which is a deferment of payment until you start earning a salary above the compulsory repayment threshold.


A scholarship can support your studies via a one-off payment or continuing financial support throughout your studies. There are several scholarships available to help you make ends meet while you study.

University is supportive

Studying at university can be challenging, but you’re not on your own. If you feel like you need to sharpen your academic skills, there’s a range of workshops and online modules you can take. Or if you’re dealing with stress at uni or in your personal life, our counselling and wellbeing services are here for you.
