Join the Global Society – it’s free!

Join the Global Society Community, a free forum for Australian students wanting to study overseas or who have already completed their overseas studies.

Connect with other students who have returned from their overseas experience, or who may be studying at the same overseas university you would like to attend. The Global Society Community has members from all around Australia who are just a click away!


Pre-departure sessions

Curtin Abroad programs all include a pre-departure session tailored to your program. It is compulsory that you attend your pre-departure session.

At this session you’ll receive important information regarding enrolment, meet with other students on the program, learn about the effects of culture shock and receive advice on OS Help loan applications, scholarships and Centrelink payments, and more.
