In 2016, Curtin made great strides to becoming a truly global university. We expanded our presence in Australia and overseas, rose in international rankings and opened several advanced teaching and learning facilities, while, at the same time, continued to foster an inclusive, welcoming culture.
No better was this exciting year shown than on Curtin’s Instagram account, which provided followers with a photo journal of what was happening on campus.
Here’s a selection of our most popular Instagram photos for 2016:
