Curtin Extra

Curtin Extra recognises your participation in approved co-curricular programs, allowing you to combine a diverse range of experiences with opportunities to develop your skills.

You might join a program because it is an area of personal interest, relevant to your degree or a step towards your future career. Curtin Extra provides evidence of your achievement in these programs though the Curtin Extra Certificate.
