Working with what they’ve got at Curtin U

Curtin U announces a ten-week programme of English language learning and study skills for international students. It is free for people who have a Curtin Perth-campus offer, subject to their reaching the required English language standard.  “We are breaking down language and cultural barriers in a bid to offer international students a true taste of what studying at Curtin University entails,” DVC I Seth Kunin explains. And he is adamant, “we will not compromise on our existing standards for English language skills.”

Good-o, with Perth attracting just 6 per cent of international students all the WA public universities really need to improve offers. And a value-add sends a better message than fee discounts (CMM July 20).
