Step 1: Choose a program

Select the program you want to participate in. Some programs will have application deadlines, so check these dates carefully.

If you study within the Faculty of Business and Law, you need to apply through the faculty’s student engagement office. Please contact them at

Step 2: Complete your application

  1. Seek approval from your course coordinator by completing the Study Plan Proposal Form. Please note that it is possible to complete a summer or winter program not for credit, in which case you do not need to complete a Study Plan Proposal. If you are applying for credit in place of electives, you still need to have this approved by your course coordinator. Some providers require that you apply for their program before you apply for credit.
  2. If you study within the Faculty of Health Sciences, Humanities or Science and Engineering, complete your Go Global Short Term & Study Abroad Application Form online. Within the application, you will be asked to upload a completed copy of your study plan proposal (if you are seeking credit) and a scanned copy of your passport.

Once you’ve submitted your application, it will be assessed and you will be advised via your Curtin student email on the outcome of your application. We recommend that you submit this documentation as early as possible.

Step 3: On your return

Don’t forget that when you return from the program you will need to submit your official transcript and marking key to to receive credit.

Don’t forget your passport!

If you don’t travel overseas regularly, you may discover that your passport has expired or is due to expire while you are away. If you are currently applying or renewing a passport, please submit it to Go Global once you have your valid document.
