From the Vice-Chancellor

Like almost all sectors, higher education has undergone a tremendous amount of change in the last 12 months.

However, we want to reassure you that our commitment to the Curtin student experience – on campus, online and through study trips and internships – is unwavering.

On the night, you’ll hear from me, as well as panels of staff, students and graduates about their experience, what Curtin has to offer and the exciting changes that have been happening at the University.

I look forward to welcoming you.

Professor Harlene Hayne ONZM
