Professor Simon

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Curtin University Malaysia, Curtin University’s largest global campus established in partnership with the Sarawak State Government in 1999.

As part of a leading global university transforming lives and communities through education and research, we offer students from over 50 different countries a quality Australian education and truly international and cross-cultural learning experience in a unique Malaysian, and specifically Borneo experience. Internationally recruited teaching staff from over 15 nations further strengthen our international focus.

Students and staff joining us are warmly welcomed into a dynamic campus community committed to educational and research excellence and innovation, cultural awareness and inclusiveness, and serving our local communities. Inevitably, this not only adds a rich and valuable dimension to our campus atmosphere, but also prepares our graduates to live and work in an increasingly global environment.

The wide range of courses in various disciplines at pre-university, undergraduate and postgraduate levels that we offer are practical and industry-focused, and in most instances, identical in structure to those at our main campus. As timing and delivery are also identical, an in line with the University’s ‘One Curtin’ approach, our students have the option to transfer to other Curtin campuses at any time during their undergraduate years for short study, student exchange, or to complete their degrees.

The ‘One Curtin’ model also means well-integrated delivery of course units using technology-rich learning environments and the latest learning and teaching technologies like distributed learning for greater student engagement and real-time interaction between students and staff across campuses.

As you can see, Curtin Malaysia is a vibrant international institution with an exciting future and I invite you to join us on our exciting journey forward.
