Services on campus

Curtin’s main Bentley campus supports a student and staff population the size of a small city. We provide all types of services to make life at uni as convenient as possible, ensuring our students and staff get the most out of their time here.

Academic support

The Learning Centre offers a variety of free programs designed to enhance the academic performance of students at all stages of their university studies. In addition to their academic programs, the centre also provides language support for students whose first language is not English. If you feel you can benefit from additional language support, specific language units are available.

The Curtin Business School Communication Skills Centre also provides a free support service for all students enrolled in Curtin Business School.
