Partnerships & projects
Our community partnerships are generating opportunities for students, and improving access to the latest in research and university education.

Fremantle Football Club
Curtin signed an alliance agreement with the Fremantle Dockers giving our students access to work-integrated opportunities at the club’s new elite training and administration facility at Cockburn Central West. The alliance includes projects around Aboriginal outreach, public health, multi-media and international student engagement.
