External Provider Opportunities

If you're looking for a really unique international experience there are even more options - our global network can take you further.

Third party providers provide a wide variety of programs such as short term courses at an overseas university, internships, volunteer programs and much more! Although the following 3rd party providers are endorsed by Curtin University, they are not managed by Curtin so you need to apply directly to the provider. Program fees do not apply and you pay these directly to the provider.
