We believe university is for everyone

Need a university degree to get the job you really truly want, but feeling daunted about going to uni?

Perhaps nobody from your family has ever gone to university, or you think uni would be too expensive, or you’ve had to overcome a disadvantage during your time at high school. These shouldn’t be dealbreakers. Find out how Curtin’s equity resources can support you.

Curtin Equity Scholarship applications for future students are now closed. Current students are able to apply from January 9 2023.

Can I still get support after I start uni?

Yes! We have all the study resources you’ll need. Once you’re enrolled as a Curtin student, you can access a variety of support to help you succeed in your course – from resources that show you how to use the library, to tips on studying and help with assignments.

Our mentors love to help

Our mentors love to help

If you’re still feeling a bit unsure in your first days at uni, we can help you through our New-to-Curtin mentoring. You’ll love having one of our more experienced students – someone who’s studying a course similar to yours and can show you the ropes.

Plus, we have three Peer Academic Mentors (PAMs) who can help you with academic skills, referencing, software skills and more – either on campus or online.
