About the Location

Australia is the world's smallest continent and has a population of a little more than 20 million people.  Perth is the capital of Western Australia and the fourth largest city on the continent with approximately 2 million people.  Located on the Swan river, it is a diverse center for arts, culture, and entertainment.

Curtin’s Study and Service Abroad Program offers an unrivalled experience of Curtin University, Perth and the region. You devise your own personalized program in collaboration with your home institution and with Curtin University. Tailor your Study and Service Abroad experience with your future career prospects in mind, and gain an invaluable advantage in a competitive employment market.

Key features of the program include:

Curtin University is home to Curtin Volunteers (CV).  CV is one of Australia's largest student-run volunteer organizations, planning various day and weekend community service opportunities.  Curtin University also offers leadership opportunities and workshops through the Curtin Leadership Centre (CLC).


Curtin University offers a variety of courses in a variety of disciplines.  Students may take courses that fulfill general studies requirements and some major requirements in areas such as business, communications, art, leisure sports management, and others.

Some things to note about courses taken abroad:

  • Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
  • Study abroad courses may not be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis, regardless of the host institution's policy.

General Program Dates

  • Fall semester – early July to late November

  • Spring semester – early February to late June


Costs for study abroad vary program to program and will not be exactly the same as on-campus costs of attendance at Elon.

For cost information for this program, please see the budget sheets:

Scholarships/Travel Grants

Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC.  For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.

If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program.  Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.


Students live in on-campus housing.  Students will have their own room but share a flat with six to eight other international students.  Flats have a common area and kitchen.


Students must complete the online Elon University study abroad application by the published deadline. See the Deadline and Events Calendar for the most up-to-date deadline information.  Applications are generally accepted one semester in advance.

Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by Curtin University.  Once approved by the GEC, you must submit an application to Curitin University.  


A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation.  Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad.  These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety.  Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program.  Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, are the student's full responsibility.

View the pre-departure orientation schedule for the semester programs.

LGBTQIA Resources

The most interesting course I took while abroad was my Asian Religion & Philosophy class. It was a unique experience to learn about a culture so different from my own and in a class in which the majority of the students were Asian themselves.
