Global experiences

Notice in regards to current COVID-19 travel restrictions

In light of the ongoing travel restrictions and border closures, Curtin SciEng will continue to suspend travel programs for Semester 2 2020 – students residing in WA are allowed to resume travel within the regional allowances and are required to complete Travel Approvals (TOP) prior to departing the Metro Area. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates regarding travel from December/January for programs as they become available.


Global experiences give you the opportunity to travel to incredible locations and gain credit towards your Curtin degree! Popular with students who are unable to commit to a semester abroad, study tours and internships are great opportunities to gain a unique global perspective.

New Colombo Plan Recipient – Semester exchange to South Korea

“If there is one thing I could recommend to future students, I would say that you should say yes to as many opportunities as you can along your exchange journey because you simply do not know how much you can gain/who you can meet from it. The NCP grant I received had such an influence on my exchange experience because it provided me the freedom to really immerse myself in the whole cultural experience without having any financial worries on the side.”
