Community Outreach

Facilitating access to higher education starts much earlier than the point of application. Curtin recognises that people need to understand the nature and benefits of a university education long before they are able to make an informed choice about their career path and post-school education.

Curtin provides a range of programs which seek to raise community awareness and understanding about university and tertiary courses. Many of these programs work with students in primary and secondary schools, providing exposure to university life and helping students to identify their own aspirations. Others work more broadly through partnerships with community organisations to support a positive culture towards education and assist people to develop the skills and experience necessary to embark on university studies.

The pages below provide more detailed information on some of Curtin's community outreach initiatives.
