Starting life in a new country is an incredible experience, but you’ll need to be prepared for it. Find essential resources for international students preparing to arrive here.
If you haven’t yet accepted your offer, check your offer email or letter as it will tell you how to do so. Once you’ve accepted, you can enrol in your course - either online, using the How to enrol page or in-person at a live enrolment session.
Once you are enrolled, you’ll be able to access the Curtin College student portal, which contains important information relevant to your studies. It includes unit outlines, course notes, timetable enrolment and fee information. It also provides access to Moodle and G-Mail applications.
Study Kiosk is also on-hand to provide you with learning support and wellbeing resources.
Familiarise yourself with the COVID-19 and Travel checklist.
Make sure you know when your first day of university is! Remember, Orientation starts the week before classes and it’s important that you attend.
Another important date is ‘census’. After the census date, you can no longer change your mind about units without being charged tuition fees. Census occurs at the end of Week 4 of classes, but make sure to check the date in the Student Portal and write it down so you don’t miss it.
Before you start your course at Curtin College, make sure you organise your finances to eliminate uncertainty and stress.
Here are a few things to do before you arrive:
Curtin College students have a range of accommodation options, both on-campus at Curtin Bentley in Perth, and off-campus nearby.
Once you have found a place to stay, map out your route to campus on your first day! There are several convenient transport options available to you.
Orientation will be one of the most important experiences you will have in your first week as a student. It is where you will meet the people who will become your friends in Perth, and the people who will help you to be successful academically.
Look out for student mentors - they will be able to help you by providing important information about studying at Curtin College and answering any questions you might have.
If you’re into sport or you have a special interest, why not explore the Curtin Student Guild and join a student club?
