Enrolment basics

To study at Curtin you need to follow the steps below:

  1. Apply for admission into the course of your choice. 
  2. If successful, the University issues an offer to you for the course.
  3. You should then accept the offer.
  4. You are now ready to enrol and register in classes!


Enrolment is the act of selecting units associated with a course and officially registering, or enrolling, in those units at the University. Your enrolment will only be initiated with your authorisation, and the endorsement of the University.

In the majority of cases you will be required to complete an enrolment for the whole year of study (changes are acceptable, but it's important that you change the enrolment by certain dates - see Amending Your Enrolment).

Once enrolled you must activate your OASIS account (if you have not done so previously).  It is a condition of your enrolment that you access OASIS regularly to receive official communications from the University via the official communication channel (OCC).

Please see how to enrol for advice and enrolment instructions.

Class registration

As part of your enrolment you may also be required to register into your lectures, tutorials etc. A link to Class Registration is available from OASIS.

In preparation for your enrolment you may like to use the Timetable Planner.

Administrative and legislative requirements

There are other administrative and legislative requirements that impact your enrolment and some of these depend on your personal circumstances.  For example, there are specific enrolment requirements for students who are visiting Australia on a student visa.

It is your responsibility to find out about the requirements that apply to your enrolment and follow them for the duration of your study.  You will find everything you need to know by regularly checking your official communications in OASIS, reading the printed material issued to you, and using the menu on the left hand side of this page.

Your enrolment will be facilitated by one key office which is specialised for each course or faculty of study and each campus.  Typically it is the office you visited when you first enrolled. See Student Contact Offices to locate the office relevant to you.
