With the shrinking ringgit, increasing oil prices and stringent visa applications, students are now seeking for more affordable alternatives to pursue their tertiary education, and what better way to save money than to study locally right? Right. To make things worse, some premier and government scholarships are allocating less quota for students to study abroad where only the cream of the crop are eligible to apply (even some don’t receive).

But you don’t have to compromise on the quality of your education just to save some extra bucks. The recent SETARA rating has awarded nine higher education institutions with 5 stars while five Malaysian universities are ranked top 300 best in the world by QS World University Rankings 2018, all the more reasons to study locally. One of these 5-star premier institutions is none other than Curtin University that is ranked the top 200 best universities in the world according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2021.
If you’re still reading this part, itching to know how does all this relate to you obtaining an Australian Bachelor’s Degree in Malaysia and have not burned with rage that we’re just beginning to explain it here, then give yourself a pat on your back!
Curtin University Sarawak is the largest international campus among other branch campuses and one of the most modern in Southeast Asia. Popular for their engineering courses, it is no surprise why they chose such a strategic location in Sarawak, that is famed for its rich biodiversity and natural resources. Curtin University Malaysia offers an unrivalled education experience all the way from the land down under. This means that you no longer have to travel all the way to a foreign land and adapt to a new environment. Instead, they have come right to your doorstep to offer nothing more than their very best.
While your friends milk out the last drop of shillings to study in Australia, you get to enjoy the same quality and syllabus right here in your homeland while enjoying your Nasi Lemak with Teh Tarik. Their internationally recognised bachelor’s degree courses offer a syllabus identical to that in their main campus in Perth, thus, enabling students to enjoy wholesome education and have the flexibility to transfer between campuses seamlessly.
The qualifications students receive here is exactly the same as those awarded in Australia, so why spend more when you can spend less for the same quality (unless you want to see live kangaroos and koalas)? Curtin Malaysia, founded in 1999, is the first foreign university to be established in East Malaysia that boasts a truly international experience with 3,500 students from over 40 countries, creating a perfect cross-cultural learning environment.
Curtin Malaysia has always fostered strong ties with leading industries, businesses and the government to offer its’ students a more holistic approach to education by offering various scholarships, financial aid, internship programmes, student activities, leadership efforts, teaching style and high-impact researches.

One such example is their bachelor’s degree programme. From business to engineering and science, students get to delve deep into the what-where-when-why-who-how of the course, ensuring every aspect of the subject matter is covered within the curriculum. If you chose to work before deciding to continue your studies, Curtin has a special pathway for you. Their Credit for Recognised Learning (CRL) takes into account students’ relevant prior studies or work experience. You get to cut short the supposedly three-to-four year studies to a shorter period of time.
Curtin’s years of excellence have made them a pro in this field. Not just any field, but specifically in the field of engineering and business. Their specialty in these areas helps to inculcate vast knowledge and hands-on skills so that students are prepared to face the competitive market once they graduate. Students will be taught to solve real-world problems through their years at Curtin.

Year after year, Curtin has not failed to equip graduates with world-class education, raising the standards in the job market. The students are trained to be innovative from the first year itself to be able to contribute their expertise to the world. They have carved a unique pathway for SPM-leavers right up to those who want to receive their doctorates. From language studies and foundation courses all the way to postgraduate, they offer every study level under the sun.
Curtin Miri is fully aware of the high demands in the job market today, even more so when more businesses are closing down and conglomerates are retrenching employees, yet, 90% of the graduates receive employment within the first six months of graduation.
Curtin’s affordable fees, globally prominent brand, strategic location and state-of-the-art facilities deliver the ultimate package. For a rather ‘young’ university, they have already carved a name of its own, thus, competing with other globally popular higher education institutions.

In addition, they also believe in exposing students beyond the four walls of the institution by taking different approaches to educating students such as field trips, valuable internships, practical assignments, highly experienced educators, guest lecturers and networking events. Even if you’re as shy as a snail, all these activities combined will surely make you come out of your shell to see the world in a different light.
