Study Abroad Program (Postgraduate)

The Study Abroad program offers international students the exciting opportunity to undertake some study in Singapore for credit towards your home degree.

By opening yourself up to the world, the world will open up for you. The experiences and qualifications you will gain at Curtin will give your home degree a global edge and equip you with the skills you need for a real advantage in your future career. Curtin Singapore invites you to experience what may be the most rewarding educational experience of your life.

You may choose from a wide range of subjects at Curtin Singapore which can be completed over 1 or 2 trimesters (4 or 8 months).

You don’t need to be a student of a partner institution, but you must be studying at a recognised education institution abroad to be eligible. You can choose from subjects offered at Curtin Singapore to be credited to your home degree as long as your home institution recognises your subject selections.

Most Curtin units are valued at 25 credit points and as a Study Abroad student, you are required to enrol in 100 credit points per trimester.

European students – 100 Curtin credit points are equivalent to 30 European Credit Transfer Scheme points (ECTS). The average 25 credit point Curtin unit is equivalent to 7.5 ECTS.

Note: it is your responsibility to arrange credit transfer with your home university. Tuition fees for subjects studied at Curtin must be paid directly to Curtin Singapore instead of your home university.
