Reputation

Curtin is WA’s most preferred university and is globally recognised for its strong connections with industry, high-impact research and wide range of innovative courses.

Our strong global reputation has seen us rise up the international university rankings in recent years. We’re now ranked in the top one per cent of universities worldwide in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2017 and have risen to 262 in the world on the QS World University Ranking 2017-18.

We’re also ranked 22nd globally for universities under the age of 50 in the QS World University Rankings 2018 and received a five-star overall excellence rating in the QS Stars rating.

When you join Curtin, you join an international family. Around a third of our 53,000 students come from a country outside Australia, which adds a valuable dimension to your university experience, both in and out of the classroom.

This worldwide focus has resulted in Curtin being ranked one of the world’s most international universities, and the second-most international university in Australia, in 2016 by Times Higher Education.
