Design Your Curtin Experience

Design Your Curtin Experience (DYCE) is about getting more out of, rather than cramming more into, your time at university!

Targeted at first year undergraduate students, this intensive program will help you craft a more fulfilling and tailored university experience, aligned to your goals and interests. By using design thinking methodology and positive psychology principles, you can expand the way you think about your time at university, helping you to get more out if it!

Designing your career and your life is a process, and when designing anything you need tools, strategies and skills. DYCE gives you the chance to develop these skills, apply tools and strategies to designing your university experience, giving you lots of practice before applying them to your life more broadly!

Curtin was the first Australian university to be accepted and trained by Stanford University in their world-famous Life Design Lab. Our aim is that you will leave this program with an actionable personal-career development plan, and a toolkit that you can apply and reapply in years to come as you navigate a life by design.

Applications are now open!

Applications for DYCE, Thursday 19 March and Thursday 26 March 2020, are now open.

The two day program is designed in a way that each activity builds upon another, so you must be able to attend both days, from 9.30am to 5.30pm. Places are limited and the program is by application only.
