Miri – 30 September 2016 – The tenth Open Day of Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) this 8 October will be an ideal opportunity for potential students to experience the campus and find out more about its courses and facilities.
They are encouraged to visit the ‘Future Students Hub’ at the Recreation & Event Centre (Heron 3) from 10 am to 5 pm where student recruitment staff will advise them on courses and enrolment as well as scholarships offered by the university. They can also join guided tours of the campus to get a feel of campus life.
Curtin Sarawak, Curtin University’s largest international campus, offers a wide range of world-ranked Curtin undergraduate and postgraduate courses in engineering and science, business and the humanities, in addition to pre-university courses that feed directly into its undergraduate programmes.

Representatives from Curtin’s main campus in Perth and branch campus in Singapore will also be on hand to advise potential students on further studies at their respective campuses.
In addition, there will be representatives of PTPTN and TEGAS and staff of Curtin Sarawak’s Scholarships & Loans Section to highlight study loans and scholarships, including the Curtin Sarawak Merit Scholarships for high achievers in the SPM, STPM, O-Level, A-Level and UEC examinations.
