Arriving in Perth

After your student visa has been granted, you should make arrangements to travel to Perth, arriving at least one week before Orientation. This will ensure you have time to familiarise yourself with your surroundings and have a chance to settle in. You must be enrolled in class by the start of Week 1.

If there is a reason why you cannot arrive in time for Orientation, contact the Curtin College admissions team. If you arrive at the airport after your start date, you may experience difficulties with the immigration authorities.

This service can be arranged with the College via local agents and is a free service. If you request a transfer but fail to use it, you will be charged an airport pick-up fee of AUD$65.

Note: If you only require airport pickup – and no homestay accommodation – complete the form and add a note that you only wish to book airport pickup.
