This article is brought to you by Curtin Malaysia.
Curtin University, Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) is the education and research hub in Asia for Curtin University, an Australian university ranked in the top two percent of universities worldwide in the highly regarded Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2016 and Western Australia’s largest and most multicultural university.
Located in Miri, Sarawak, it boasts a 1,200-acre garden campus and modern facilities befitting its status as Curtin’s largest international campus, and one of Malaysia’s leading tertiary institutions according to Malaysia’s SETARA ratings.
Students study courses identical to those at other Curtin campuses and degrees earned are conferred directly by Curtin University. They also enjoy an undifferentiated learning experience and student support mechanisms such online study resources and distributed learning between campuses.
A Global Focus
Like its Australian parent, Curtin Malaysia has a global focus with over 4,000 students from more than 45 countries. Highly-qualified teaching staff from some 15 countries further strengthen its international outlook. In addition, students are offered flexibility in completing their degrees, in which they can study part of their degrees at Curtin’s main campus in Perth or at its Singapore campus.
Curtin Malaysia offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in engineering and related sciences, business and humanities, as well as courses at pre-university level that feed directly into its undergraduate programmes. The courses benefit from the input of industrial partners and the campus’ location in the industrial hub of Sarawak where students can gain valuable industry exposure.
In terms of facilities, Curtin Malaysia offers the best possible facilities and services one would expect from a branch campus of a global university, including a modern library, state-of-the-art laboratories, innovative learning spaces and computing facilities, secure student housing and a range of sports and recreational facilities.
It continues to create new learning spaces equipped with the latest technological advances in teaching and learning which are aimed at increasing student engagement, fostering collaboration between staff and students, and providing flexible, technology-rich environments.
In addition, aside from the joys and benefits of living in Australia compared to the joys and benefits of living in Malaysia, the major difference between pursuing a Curtin degree in Perth or in Miri is one of cost. Completing a Curtin degree at Curtin Malaysia is currently around a third the cost of completing exactly the same degree in Australia – an option that is certainly worth considering.
