Higher education access and support
At Curtin, we want to uncover the potential in people. We do this by raising awareness of the long-term benefits of higher education, providing pathways into university for a diverse range of students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds and from regional and remote areas, and supporting the success of students through our higher education access and support programs.
Many of these initiatives are supported through the Australian Government’s Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program. See our Access and Participation Plan for 2019 [.pdf 182KB].
