Study tours

Curtin University study tours are a great way to experience the natural beauty and culture of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. At the same time, you will have the chance to improve your English skills and your confidence. Study tours include English classes at Curtin’s Perth campus where you can meet other international students.

Study tours can include excursions, field trips, workshops and guest speakers. The content and length of each program can be tailored to meet individual group needs.

We will encourage you to speak English during your stay so that you will feel more confident in your English language ability. Once you finish a Curtin study tour, you should have improved your English speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.
