Curtin Malaysia’s second semester Foundation intake extended to 13 September

Miri – 9 August 2019 – Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) is extending its Semester 2, 2019 Foundation Programme intake to 13 September 2019 to cater to school leavers who missed its initial deadline but are still keen to enter its foundation programmes in Engineering and Science, Commerce or Arts.

Those who wish to apply are encouraged to do so right away as mini orientation sessions and a special schedule of classes are being scheduled to ensure help the latecomers get up to speed with those who enrolled earlier. Formal classes are scheduled to commence on 14 August.

Curtin Malaysia’s foundation programmes are intensive, focused programmes aimed at ensuring students attain academic requirements to enter undergraduate programmes, and are able to adapt to university life more confidently, both in terms of level and style of education.

Students are guaranteed places in the undergraduate programmes of their choice in the university’s Faculty of Engineering and Science, Faculty of Business or Faculty of Humanities upon successful completion of their one-year foundation programmes.

Students benefit from low student-lecturer ratios in classrooms and a variety of modern, diversified teaching methods including workshops, tutorials, laboratory projects and group work. They are also taught by highly-experienced lecturers in modern, vibrant learning spaces and have access to various academic and personal support mechanisms such as one-on-one consultations with academic staff and numerous modules conducted through the university’s Office of Learning and Teaching.

As Curtin Malaysia applies Curtin’s ‘triple-i’ curriculum model which embeds industry links, intercultural and indigenous awareness and interdisciplinary study into each course curriculum, learning is not confined to classrooms and students can find learning beyond the classroom just as rewarding.

Curtin Malaysia is Curtin University’s largest international campus and global hub in Asia offering a unique international and cross-cultural learning experience for students from over 50 different countries. Its globally relevant Curtin courses and teaching staff from some 15 countries further strengthen its international focus.

Curtin University’s strong global reputation has seen it rise up the international university rankings in recent years. It is now ranked in the top one per cent of universities worldwide in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2018 and has risen to 230th in the world in the QS World University Ranking 2019-20.

It is also ranked 20th globally for universities under the age of 50 in the QS World University Rankings 2019 and received a five-star overall excellence rating in the QS Stars Ranking.

Students at Curtin Malaysia study courses identical to those at other Curtin campuses in Australia, Dubai, Singapore and Mauritius, and degrees earned at the Malaysian campus are conferred directly by the parent campus in Perth. They also enjoy an undifferentiated learning experience and student learning support mechanisms available to all Curtin students.

Applicants with outstanding results can take advantage of the Curtin Malaysia Merit Scholarships and Curtin Malaysia 20th Anniversary Scholarships offering significant tuition fee waivers.
