In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Curtin University has introduced a financial support programme for its students. In an attempt to assist those in financial hardships due to the pandemic, the university is providing tuition bursaries to those who require immediate financial assistance and do not have other means of support available.
These financial bursaries will be available across all of Curtin University’s global campuses in Australia, Dubai, Singapore, Malaysia and Mauritius and assessed on a need-basis for all undergraduate, postgraduate and pathway programme students.
Professor John Evans, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Curtin University Dubai, said, “While the world fights against this pandemic, it is our responsibility to take care of our students and their well-being. By providing the financial support where possible, we are trying to minimize the impact this pandemic will have on the lives and education of our students.”
In addition to the financial aid, the university has also announced two prestigious scholarships for undergraduate students planning to start university this September, and rewarding their efforts in academics, sports or recognizing their contribution to society.
