Free Curtin Program Puts International Students on Pathway to Success

 

PERTH, AustraliaAug. 9, 2018 — In a move to assist international students meet English language requirements and put them on a pathway to success, Curtin University is offering a free 10-week, tailor-made program to enhance language skills and immerse students in the Australian academic culture.

In addition to English language training that includes speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary support, the 10-week program will offer lessons in such areas as study skills, academic referencing skills, critical thinking development and how to communicate effectively in seminars, discussions and presentations in an academic context. It will also provide an introduction to Curtin’s course outlines and student systems as well as bespoke tours of the relevant Curtin faculties.

Curtin University Deputy Vice-Chancellor International Professor Seth Kunin said the program would start immediately for international students planning to enter the University courses from 2019 onwards who have been identified as needing to improve their English language skills.

Professor Kunin said the program would offer international students the skills needed to support their university studies at Curtin.

“With campuses in MalaysiaSingaporeDubai and Mauritius, as well as two major campuses in Western Australia, Curtin is a truly global university and we want to ensure that our students are equipped with the tools for success in their tertiary studies,” Professor Kunin said.

“This program, which will help international students reach their required English language level and navigate their university studies, will be available free of charge to international students seeking to study at Curtin University.”

Professor Kunin said the program aimed to make international students as comfortable and familiar as possible with the academic context in Australia through the 10-week program.

“We will not compromise on our existing standards for English language skills but we recognise that some students will require that extra level of support and this program will offer them the greatest assistance,” Professor Kunin said.

“By offering this free program, we are breaking down language and cultural barriers in a bid to offer international students a true taste of what studying at Curtin University entails.”

The program is only free for students who have an English condition on their offer and progress to university studies at Curtin University’s campus in PerthWestern Australia.

Curtin course fees are also frozen for the next two years, meaning a student who starts studying at Curtin in 2018 will pay the same fees for most courses in 2019.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
