Why choose Curtin?

Curtin Malaysia is a partnership between Curtin University in Australia and the State Government of Sarawak. We offer students the unique opportunity to follow courses from a celebrated Australian university right in the heart of tropical East Malaysia. Our internationally recognized degrees are exactly the same as those awarded in Australia. The difference is our unique location on the west coast of Sarawak, with 187 000 hectares of coastal reef on our doorstep and the 140 million year old rain forests of Borneo in our backyard.


Our University has a strong, international focus. In addition to our campus here in Sarawak, we have locations in Perth, Singapore, Dubai and Mauritius, all offering globally recognized programs that prepare you to work in competitive markets around the world. Since the courses and subjects offered by Curtin Malaysia are the same as those provided in Australia, you are able to transfer to or from either location at the end of any semester should you wish. With our degrees so much more affordable than those in Australia, and being of the same quality, you may prefer to complete your entire tertiary education in Sarawak.

With over 45 different nationalities represented on our campus, you can be sure that you’ll have the opportunity to study in a multicultural and inclusive environment that gives you a sense of belonging. We have worked very hard to recruit top academic staff from all over the world so whether you complete your study here in Miri or move on to Perth, you are part of the same international network from your first day at Curtin. When you enroll, you’ll become part of the Curtin family of over 51 000 students spread across Australia and South East Asia; and when you graduate you’ll form part of an alumni network that stretches across the globe.
