start and arrow on road

 

Curtin Extra is Curtin’s official form of recognition for students who have made significant contributions to co-curricular programs. Participation in these programs is aimed to enhance your personal and professional development, and to provide unique and enriching experiences while studying at Curtin.

Available throughout your degree, you can participate in more than one Curtin Extra approved program, taking into account your course load and other commitments.

How do I get started?

Step 1: Register to participate in a program

  • Review Curtin Extra programs to see what is available to you
  • Select the programs that interest you and contact the program coordinator for details about joining and how to participate as part of Curtin Extra.

If you are already involved in a Curtin Extra approved program, speak to your program coordinator about Curtin Extra requirements.

Step 2: Complete requirements in UniHub

If you are eligible to participate, the program coordinator will forward your details to the Curtin Extra team. We will grant you access to the program in UniHub.

You will receive an email from UniHub with a link to view your program’s Curtin Extra requirements, including your deadline to complete.

You will have access to:

  •  Submit Hour Logs
  •  Complete stream modules (if required)
  •  Complete the reflection, once you have logged sufficient hours (if required)

If you have not received this email within a month of starting your participation in a program, please contact your program coordinator directly or email curtinextra@curtin.edu.au

Step 3: Receive your certificate

Your successful completion of Curtin Extra approved programs will appear on your Curtin Extra Certificate. Curtin Extra records are updated once a year at the end of your participation period (end of August or end of January).

To view your Curtin Extra eRecord, please go to the Campus Life & Guild tab in OASIS.

If you are graduating, your Curtin Extra Certificate will be posted to your preferred mailing address as recorded in OASIS, in line with the Graduation Office mailout dates (end of September or end of March). Please ensure you keep your contact details updated.

You can also purchase a copy of your Curtin Extra Certificate through the ‘Order Official Documents’ tab in OASIS.
