What’s your pathway to Curtin?

People start university courses at different points in their lives. Not everybody can, or wants, to go to university straight after high school, so university classes are made up of people from all ages and backgrounds. Advancing your career, re-training for a new career, getting back into the workforce or joining the workforce for the first time could all be reasons behind your decision to start university now.

So if you’re thinking about going to university, but you’ve had some time away from study or you’re not sure if you qualify, don’t worry – there are many different ways to gain entry into a Curtin course.

Pathway Options

Portfolio entry allows you to demonstrate your previous experience, aptitude and qualifications which could help you qualify for select courses in humanities, science, business and health sciences. Learn more about portfolio entry.
