Sprawling campus: Go online to find out more about Curtin University Malaysia.

APPLICATIONS for Curtin University Malaysia’s second semester degree and foundation intakes in July and August are now open.

Interested students can do so at ‘Curtin’s Virtual Info Day’ where they can engage with staff, academics and student ambassadors from the comfort of their homes.

They can also find out about available scholarships and student loans, including merit scholarships, fee grants for school leavers with outstanding exam results, and the Yayasan Sarawak’s BP40 Bursary Scheme which enables students to study at Curtin Malaysia at fees equivalent to public universities.

A free personality-career mapping test that will match students’ personality traits and interests with courses and career options that would suit them best is available.

Additionally, students can take a virtual tour of Curtin Malaysia’s campus to get a feel of what it would be like to study at the campus and see all the facilities.

Curtin Malaysia’s pro vice-chancellor, president and chief executive professor, Simon Leunig, said the ‘Virtual Info Day’ was conducted to address their students’ and parents’ needs for information amid the movement control order (MCO).

Curtin Malaysia, he said, has emerged more resilient and primed to navigate through unprecedented circumstances like the MCO.

As soon as the MCO was announced, the institution responded by moving all lectures online within 24 hours, followed by the transition of tutorials and workshops to online spaces within a week.

Curtin Malaysia’s ‘Virtual Info Day’ will be ongoing until the MCO ends.
