2445 school leavers and mature age learners will receive an offer for a place at Curtin University this week, in a special early round of offers to provide security in this COVID-19 disrupted year.
Curtin Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic, Professor Jill Downie said it would mean thousands of students can now head into the festive season with a level of certainty about their learning futures.
“Curtin is delighted to be able to extend undergraduate entry offers to students from across the country, ahead of the January, 2021 date initially flagged through WA’s Tertiary Institution Service Centre (TISC),” Professor Downie said.
“We understand this has been an unprecedented year for disruption and challenges for Year 12 students, and these early offers build on our decisions to open 2020 applications three months early and create flexible and expanded admission pathways.
“Our approach allowed students to focus on their studies, with the reassurance that a range of entry and application options was open to them, and now, almost two and a half thousand have received offers before Christmas, to study at Curtin, WA’s top public university for student experience.
“Curtin’s priority has, and will continue to be, ensuring our current and future students are not disadvantaged due to the adjustments we have all had to make during this challenging year and we look forward to welcoming our 2021 cohort.”
Of the 2445 places offered, 2426 went to Western Australian students. Curtin gave the most offers to Commerce applicants, followed by Engineering. Offers for quota courses, such as medicine and physiotherapy, will be sent out in January.
