Curtin Malaysia’s Foundation intake extended to 22 April

Miri – 23 March 2017 – To cater to SPM school-leavers who have just received their results and are keen to enter Foundation programmes in Engineering and Science, Commerce or Arts, Curtin University, Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) is extending its current Foundation programme intake to 22 April 2017.

The extension also applies to students with O-Level qualification who have yet to apply.

Though classes are due to commence on 27 March following a week-long orientation this week, the newly-enrolled students will still be able to catch up through special mini-orientation sessions in place of the formal orientation and special learning sessions for missed classes.

The 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.

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

To give them the best opportunity to achieve their goals, students are taught by highly experienced lecturers and have access to various academic and personal support mechanisms. They also benefit from low student-lecturer ratios in classrooms and a variety of modern, diversified teaching methods including workshops, tutorials, laboratory projects and group work.

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 indeed students find learning beyond the classroom most rewarding.

Curtin Malaysia is the largest international campus of Curtin University, a university currently ranked in the top 2 percent of universities worldwide and number 10 in Australia in the highly regarded Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2016.

Students at Curtin Malaysia study courses identical to those at other Curtin campuses in Australia and Singapore, and degrees earned at the Malaysian campus are conferred directly by the mother campus in Perth. Flexible transfer options are also available where students can transfer to Perth for one semester and vice-versa.

They also enjoy an undifferentiated learning experience and student support mechanisms such online study resources and distributed learning between campuses.

Like its Australian parent, Curtin Malaysia has a very global focus with over 4,000 students from more than 45 countries and highly-qualified teaching staff from some 15 countries further strengthening its international outlook.

Students with outstanding results can take advantage of the Curtin Malaysia Merit Scholarships offering significant tuition fee waivers. Other financial aid such as PTPTN study loans, EPF/SOSCO withdrawal schemes and a Fee Instalment Plan are also available. Full details can be obtained at

For those who are interested to visit the campus and meet with representatives from the Marketing Department, Curtin Malaysia has extended its course counselling hours from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 4pm on Saturdays (until 15 April only).
