Curtin University welcomes sponsored students, but it is important to note that prospective students need to make their own enquiries about scholarship opportunities available within their home country or about potential sponsorship opportunities (such as support from your employer) to study in Australia.
Information for sponsors
Information for sponsored students
Curtin University has a significant number of international students sponsored by government agencies, non-profit organisations and corporate partners. We strive to make a difference to the global community by working with our sponsor agencies and partners through our world class programs and services.
There is a team of dedicated staff at Curtin who aim to ensure that sponsors and their students are provided with quality support during their studies at Curtin.
Arriving at Curtin
Before you arrive at Curtin
It will be necessary to identify the students sponsoring organisation at either the application and/or acceptance stage of admission to Curtin. In order to do this, it is important that essential university sponsor forms are completed and returned during the application or acceptance process. Once you apply to Curtin, the relevant staff will guide you through this process and provide the relevant forms.
For any queries, please contact ISSU:
When you arrive at Curtin
When arriving at Curtin for the first time, you will need to report to the ISSU at Curtin International (Bentley Campus, Building 102) to meet your designated Sponsored Student Officer who will assist you throughout your studies and liaise with your sponsor.
Information on scholarship extensions
If the student does not complete the course by the sponsorship end date, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the sponsor to discuss a sponsorship extension. If an extension is granted, the sponsor must notify the ISSU outlining the details of the extension.
Note: The University does not invoice sponsors for OSHC renewals to cover a student during the visa extension period. Students must pay their own OSHC renewal and, if applicable, send their OSHC receipt directly to the sponsor for reimbursement.
