About Curtin University of Technology Sarawak Campus, Malaysia



Curtin University of Technology Sarawak Campus, Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) is the first offshore campus of Curtin University of Technology, Western Australia (Curtin Western Australia). Located in Miri, Sarawak, Curtin Sarawak is the first foreign university campus to be set up in East Malaysia.



Curtin’s reputation for excellence in the South East Asian region provided the basis for Sarawak State Government’s initiative to invite Curtin to establish an international university in Sarawak. Curtin Sarawak has been actively involved in Malaysian education for the past two decades and the establishment of Curtin Sarawak’s campus ensures that it will continue to increase its contributions towards excellence in Malaysian tertiary education.



Curtin Sarawak’s operations in Miri, Sarawak commenced in February 1999. In 2002, the new purpose-built campus in a garden opened, which is a world-class facility where stylish architecturally designed buildings complement state-of-the-art equipment and facilities coupled with sophisticated IT linkages to provide students access to the resources of Curtin, Western Australia. In November 1999, Curtin Sarawak was awarded the Multimedia Super Corridor status and was renewed in 2006.



Miri, Sarawak



Sarawak, on the north-western part of Borneo Island, is the largest, and may be considered the richest, of the 13 states / territories in the Federation of Malaysia. Miri is a modern, developed, safe city with modern infrastructure, excellent hotels and restaurants, comprehensive local and international banking facilities, multi-storey shopping malls as well as traditional stores and simpler craft and produce markets selling local specialties. Originally an oil town, Miri is now more renowned for its natural attractions and heritage and is becoming increasingly popular as an adventure / ecotourism destination. Miri enjoys warm equatorial weather with plenty of sunshine all year round. It is well serviced by road and air links and caters for regular flights to Kuching (the state capital) and Kuala Lumpur (the national capital) where travellers get connecting flights overseas.

The population of 230,000 people consists mainly of Chinese, Malay, Dayaks and various other ethnic groups. Bahasa Malaysia or Malay is the national language, however, English and Chinese are widely used in tourism and business. The people of Sarawak have a reputation for their warmth, friendliness and hospitality.





Living in MIRI

Miri Resort City is the gateway to northern Sarawak. Miri Airport receives flights from Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Johor Bahru and Labuan coupled with other interstate flights from Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and other smaller airports in and around Miri.

Miri’s calendar of festivals reflects the city’s multi-cultural society as it is home to a large number of Sarawak native communities with many colourful cultural events held where everyone celebrates with fun and joy.

It offers an array of exciting lifestyles with well-maintained, neatly trimmed and clean public parks, walkways and playgrounds and is surrounded by National Parks, some within driving distance for day trips.

Miri has in place excellent public amenities, medical facilities and financial institutions. It has a general hospital, polyclinics, two private hospitals and many other private medical and dental clinics

EquinoX answered the part on shopping complex and pro saloons. Food wise, I think there are alot of places u can visit. High class of course its the 'restaurants' and hotels. =) Mariott Buffet is AWESOME, but its costly. I like Pongs Cafe cos its cheap and HUGE in portion. Ok I always go here, Faradale Cafe. Find it, and try the things there for dinner, as in call in dishes. Its SUPER DUPER CHEAP. But, The longest time i waited was like 1.5 hour =/ but yeah its worth waiting.

I am currently studying in Curtin Sarawak and also from Sabah. Well, all i have to say is... be prepare for the life there... It can be REALLY boring sometimes... The university is situated 30mins bus trip from the town. You might find exciting in your first time in town but will get bored soon because the shopping mall is quite small compare to kk. In every tuition free week, i came back kk because really cannot tahan stay there for one week without going to school or any activities. UNLESS, you have transportation. That's a different story. Well, this is just my experience there. Hope you have a nice schooling there. Btw, Villa is better because its much much more convenient than Village.

stay outside the villa cheaper.
the internet line(deconexion, operated by other isp) installed by uni very poor. ok ok only.

and ya, villa much better cz nearer to shoplots. altho theres much better choice to stay in other places, about RM300 fully furnished.

transportation is not really a problem as curtin provides bus services to the student. every 15-1 hour per trip from housing area to curtin depends on peak time or not.

as for a trip to down town, theres Miri busses(66) around too, not much a hassle if u know how.

best if u know some local student and make fren with them. they will bring u go gai gai. no nid take bus.

orientation S.U.C.K.S! i repeat, ORIENTATION S.U.C.K.S!
im not trying to be rude. but its fact.
some of the SOUR are quite 38.

If you're choosing courses that are not offered but Curtin Miri, better go elsewhere although they'll tell you : get 15 ppl and we'll start a class. Such courses are like Geophysics. It's sort of like cincai open a class, and students have to go oversea after year 2 coz no more classes available. I'm a Mirian but I'm not sure whether the uni is good, didn't study thr. It's so far away from the city (to me), and heard that they always ask student to pay this pay that. Good thing is if you do engineering here and you need practical, you can go to Shell because Shell is at Miri. As for part time jobs, dont wish to get pay much, average RM3ph, some may also pay RM 2.50ph (Desert Ice cream), promoter in Parkson RM4ph stand all time and no handphone. Miri is BORING. No more beach now because it's wipe away already. Btw, Miri is growing with the building of new hotels (dunno when will they even start the construction) Curtin Miri that area is a new area which the government wish to develope, more housing areas than shops. And also bushes !!

Village is the most comfortable of all three. Next step down is Villa.
Lakeside...err... Based on my opinion I do not find it comfy at all. blink.gif

However, if you want to know which one is the most convenient, it is definitely Villa. The bus stop is just outside (just like Village) and the shops are just opposite the road (NOT like Village. Walking to the shops is okay for the first few weeks. Soon, uber laziness kicks in and you know the rest...)

For first year first semester students, it is recommended to stay with the Uni's lodging so it is easier to make new friends as well as a first step to get used to Miri. Thats what I did. First sem stay in Village then second sem move out. Now proceeding in 2nd year.
BTW, it is also a big plus if you have a car. Most of the *cough* activity *cough* are closer to the city centre. Senadin is well, to be frank, quiet, minus off the car accidents and the sound of modded car exhausts... tongue.gif

As for me i rent a house outside rclxms.gif i.e quiet close to DPS i would say... even after considering streamyx, electricity, water, astro its still cheaper than the accommodation provided by uni....like bluhound said Having a car is a big plus coz u dont need to worry if u miss the shuttle bus to campus.... My second year first sem would be my most horrible cry.gif though.. Need to stop DOTAing already huhu

Bicycle is fine. You can lock your bike behind Curtin's bus drop off point. I've got friends who use bikes to Uni. However, prepare to bring along a poncho.....
The rain can be a hassle, especially when you wake up for lectures assuming you take the bike and skip the bus. There was once a friend who rode to Uni under the rain. One hand on the bike's handlebars and the other hand holding the umbrella.
It worked.....somewhat... sad.gif

For Australian uni, you can assume they all have lots and lots of assignment. That's the way they operate. Very much unlike UK's uni. Just like Aust's SAM vs UJ's A-Level.

Yes, I am currently taking BTech, 2nd year. I am not sure whether having a diploma will take you directly to 2nd year.

I do only know that a friend of mine who has a diploma in Mechanical Engineering was given an advance of 150 points. If I am not mistaken, it depends on the coordinator.

As for intake dates, refer to the link below:-

Well for my college here right now is that i could proceed to my second year if i finished my diploma, so i was wondering if it would be the same, if i have to start over from year 1 it would really be a waste of time IMO, unless I want to change to a different course, otherwise i'll have to repeat the things i've studied.

It depends. Its not exactly that Curtin is boring, its more like the surrounding area. Some of them say its relaxingly nice and some the opposite.
To me, compare with Miri and my hometown KK, well KK is way better for me of course. Miri has 3 shopping centres and 1 major cinema. KK beats Miri by several fold. What more if compared to KL... sweat.gif
Car traffic is the opposite though. Way more relaxing to drive in Miri..... No car park woes in city centre tongue.gif

jupiter_9, since you're heading there tomorrow, try find it out yourself...

honours in the australian context, unlike the british system, is an extra year one does at the end of the basic degree.......and often acts as a bridge towards a masters........

and engineering is always a 4 year course in oz, unlike again the brits.....you will need to study the full 4 years anyway, if you want to be eligible for consultant engineer status with iem.........

if you 1 2 compare swinburne and curtin, what i can say is curtin is way above swinburne. I think in uni life most of the time you don't really depend on your lecturer anymore. True to say that if all the lecturer are good, then the path toward a cert would be smooth. I always treat it as a challenge of my life.

Right after exiting the baggage collecting area, head to the right side that shows car rentals. One of the booth is the place to book a taxi. Just say Curtin University. You pay at the booth and they will give you a coupon then head outside and pick your taxi. Give the taxi driver the coupon.
Now most airports in M'sia uses the coupon system.

Or you can arrange Curtin's Airport Reception Service.

Sigh, this came as a shock to me.. sad.gif

Like as if a hurricane went past it. cry.gif

House locked and armed but still managed to break the glass and cut the grille...
Current and new Curtin students..BE EXTRA VIGILANT when you're in Senadin.
Can't f*k'n believe it. mad.gif

Two cases of human stabbings, gang robbery, multiple break-ins around the area, others pets got stolen and now this, all within the first half of this year..... cry.gif
Its really getting me paranoid, safety's at risk....

Got the cops on a tail now...crossing fingers for answers.

Both places are just as bad as staying outside.
Village "pecah masuk"...happened number of times already even when the students are inside the house. To the exent there was one time, the management hired guards and had German Shepard guard dogs on patrol.
They closed the Village gates and heavily restrict the movement of cars in the premises.

Now they removed the dogs but kept the gates closed but one "pecah masuk" is already enough to threaten the security over there.
Sames goes to Villa. I heard that there was one case where a person tried to sneak in via the Villa drains into the premises.

Cut it short, as long you're staying in Senadin, the risk is just too high to stay comfortably.

Just make sure you lock the door properly and dont leave the gate open... i'm staying outside and once my housemate forgot to lock his motor plus the gate is open so wide like welcoming the robber... so guess what happen next.. sigh~

Check out Curtin's O'week page. http://www.curtin.edu.my/oweek/about.htm
O'week Programmes are available on that page but it is for 2009. However, it is similar for every year.
I attended mine back in '08. Only went for the first few days for some enrollment stuff and car sticker registration as in between the days the organisers had organised some group ice breaking activities which I was not interested at.... sweat.gif

Yes, they do have clubs. Just think of what clubs you have back in high school and most probably you'll find it there, with some extras.

Ice-breaking activities as in a type of "get to know you" activities. There are actually many types of ice breaking activities however while I was there (no flaming pls, it's just my own point of view.) the organisers pick the activities that are more suited for a much younger age group (early teens)......

As for buying books, you can them at any appropriate time as there is a dedicated bookshop selling books all week. You will only know what books you need once you attend your first lectures (or for those who do not attend them, the 'unit outline' via Curtin's web site will mention it).

FYI, books are kinda pricey. I bought books with prices ranging from RM90 to a hole burning RM600!... shocking.gif There are photocopies around but *cough* 'officially' *cough* they are not allowed to be used in lectures. Something about breach of copyright or something like that......
However, if you're taking a unit with an open book exam, only original copies allowed...

Yes, you can. I entered Curtin with my A-Level results.

To enter foundation, you'll need SPM or equivalent.
To enter a degree course, you'll need either STPM, A-Levels, UEC or equivalent.
If you need more info, check the Curtin 2010 prospectus.

If I am not mistaken, yes. I was told that starting from 2010 onwards, minimum points to enter Engineering will be 9 points which is an increase of 2 points from last year. Below is how credits is calculated from your A-Level grade (as of 08-09).

E - 1 point
D - 2 points
C - 3 points
B - 4 points
A - 5 points

yeah why this thread is so dead? make it alive fellow curtinians!!!

I think they are trying to improve.. construction here and there...

Facilities wise, I'd say its quite good..

Teaching is ok ok lah for engineering...

It depends on individual, if you could manage to adapt to the live there, you will actually enjoy staying there. It's a peaceful place actually.. laugh.gif

Hey guys!
I wanna ask you guys something...
How is the broadband service over there?
If you stay at the hostel there, does the internet provided?
If yes, how was it? Bad all the time?
Thanks ~

If you stay at the hostel, free WiFi is provided (DeConnexion - free registration required). Max speed depends on the numbers of users online. Last time I used it it was only average with predictable downtimes (aka A LOT).

Streamyx is available over there but only max of 1Mbps. However, it depends on which housing phase you are going to stay at. Some areas only get max speed of 100KB/s but I usually get 170KB/s-ish.

Right now its Celcom. I had to call out a couple of times before I can get a successful call. I either get hang ups, robot sounding voice, no sound from both parties or voice mails.... =(

I suspect that there are quite a number of Celcom Broadband users there, causing congestion. If I head down to the city centre, all is fine.

Yeah, because of that my calls kept on dropping off and 3G video calls become terrible. The other party's face became jumbled squares.
Last year it was just fine.
sigh......

I guess it bad news for me but good news for Curtin, it means more students have enrolled to Curtin... unsure.gif

Hi.... I'm going to Curtin next month, taking a foundation course.
I'm just wondering.. how is the connection for Celcom broadband over at the Villa as I'll be staying there.

Hello all, i am an international student. I have contacted Curtin yesterday for the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering. They replied via e-mail that i send the documents soon if interested to join July 2011 Intake.

So guys please help me, i am going to send documents to Curtin in a day or 2. My questions are all very general like why i choose Curtin University, how is the university, number of international students, it's reputation, recognition/accredit, quality of studies, fees for international students(any hidden fees?)...etc. Need opinions only on education. Things like shopping centers, good transport...etc are not very important.

Thank you

I thought the answers are found throughout this thread if you care to read through it? wink.gif
Curtin campus is nice and serene, quite conducive for study I'd say..minimum distractions unlike big cities.
The fees are way cheaper than Nottingham/Monash (by abt 60%)
Sarawak seems like very far to a lot of people from Peninsular who have not been there, but it's only 2-hr flight and the airfare is cheap.
The last I checked, MAS was offering special airfare to Miri at RM 145 one way, which is even cheaper than AA.

The tuition fee is shown here. You can take a look in this.

Prospectus 2011

I'm curtin engineering foundation sem 2 student ^^ And I'm a local.

The number of international students are quite many actually BTW. There are others coming from the west malaysia and sabah as well.
In my group, (total around 20 only as we are from july 2010 intake for foundation sem 1 so the group is smaller, if it's january intake there will be more students)

half of us are sarawakian (chinese n bumiputras like iban), 3-4 from sabah, 1 from burma and 2-3 from west malaysia.

To those thinking of coming here:

Welcome to Curtin and hope you enjoy your studies here. =)


Just an advice, if u are coming to miri to have fun, you will be disappointed. Miri, according to some people, is simply a dead town. LOL
Not much nightlife here.


BTW, surprise to see you here, tehtmc. =)


Added on June 16, 2011, 10:29 pmTo add in some info, the number of international students that are studying foundation in engineering in my batch is 9 people. For the foundation in arts and commerce, i'm not sure. =)

Just a rundown of Curtin University.

People often think that we are lousy U as we are located in Miri. A lot of you might not have even heard of Miri and this put off the idea of coming to Curtin. Rest assured, Miri is a peaceful place and best suited if you need a peaceful environment to study. People here are harmonious and far better than West Malaysian. Those who had been in Miri can vouch for this.

Curtin University Sarawak is famed for its School of Business and School of Engineering. Our best two courses, Civil & Construction Engineering and Chemical Engineering are world class programs. We are only behind Monash and Nottingham if you guys are comparing it among the IPTS in Malaysia. We offered a range of double major under our Commerce Degree.

As we are branch campus and also not twinning campus, we have the privilege to deliver courses in symmetry as our main campus in Perth, Australia. Lecture notes, assignments, presentations and final exam is exactly the same as what they have in Perth. Even the certificate is identical.

So if you have any question, please pm me for more details or visit our website at http://www.curtin.edu.my/index.htm

The second intake for 2011 is still open!!



ps. im doing this out of goodwill. no commission for me. tongue.gif

Living cost in Miri is pretty cheap. Just standby around RM20 per day for meals which I think is more than enough. Excluding the accommodation, I saying you are looking at around Rm600 - Rm800 per month. Transport is free since we have college bus. Other expenses might be your entertainment.

Price different? What are you comparing against? Let's assume you are comparing against Curtin Villa and Vilage. Lakeside apartment is located inside the campus while the other 2 are located outside the campus. That is why it is more expensive as it is only 5 minutes away from the campus. Very convenient but food choices are limited.

You have to be fast if you wanna book accommodation oh.

Oh lakeside 1 and 2. Lakeside 2 is only for female whereas lakeside 1 is mixed. Yeap, lakeside apartments comes with kitchen and electrical stove so you guys can do you cookings inside the apartment.

Anything regarding the application you may pm me lo. I am most willing to help. biggrin.gif

Actually lakeside 1 and lakeside 2 has different layout.

Lakeside 1 is more to hostel whereas lakeside 2 design is like normal apartment. Lakeside 1, if you enter, you will see rows of rooms and there's kitchen and bathroom. If you enter lakeside 2, you will see living room then rooms. More like your normal house la. laugh.gif

And please do tell me where mostly international students stay? I want to be amongst international students. Detailed reply please. Thank you... :)

I would suggest that you stay in Curtin Villa or Village which is located outside our campus. From what I see, you are getting MPM which means you have a lot of time to kill over the weekdays and I dont really see what can you do in Lakeside Apartment during the weekdays.

As Curtin Villa and Village are located outside campus, freedom is more. You can go in and out as you like unlike Lakeside Apartment. Maybe you can do some part time job over the weekdays. I'm not sure about the law towards foreigners. tongue.gif

Lakeside apartment: Near to campus but limited choice of food. Can cook inside though.

Villa: Off campus but nearer compared to Village. Best place of accommodation. Very full every semester. Must apply really early to get it.

Village: Further down from campus. Will be a wise choice if you or your friend has transport. Otherwise, it's same as Villa.

Normally, the summer classes i think they are conducted during the first few months(Jan-Mar) before the march intake. Only my guess, as i'm not that sure about that. U might want to check the curtin website, www.curtin.edu.my

if not mistaken, u have to move in before the orientation starts. Most of my friends coming from other places attended the orientation week. But still, it's up to you.. u know... not all students are willing to attend the orientation week tongue.gif

until now (almost 1.5 years in curtin) i only know that there are this 'transfer to perth for one sem' program that is available to be applied every semester. The fee of that particular semester u go to curtin perth will be counted in MYR (which means u pay curtin sarawak's fee, u get curtin perth's 1 semester, obviously cheaper), but if u decided to stay thr for the next few semesters, that's another case i think.

And i'm not sure how many times a student can apply this. One of the requirement I can remember is that you should have at least 1 year left of study period in curtin if u want to apply.

And just a piece of mind, it might be hard for you to adapt the new environment & cope with the final year high workload studies at the same time if u r going at your final year.... So, if u wish to apply and give it a try, it will be better to try it in ur 2nd year =)


What course are you going to take? Don't you think having the studies done directly in a same campus a good idea? Eg. mechatronics engineering students in curtin sarawak campus must have their final or last 2 years(not sure sweat.gif ) studies in perth... Quite troublesome i think. doh.gif

Yeap. i dont really know about the geology career but it should be fine without honours, since u dun need to register under professional bodies (engineers need BEM).

so diff is u get a B.Sc but not a B.Sc(Hons) tongue.gif n since u'll be in miri u need to make use of ur time to know people from oil & gas companies here. not easy to find a job as a geologist in other places

Umm....I have a question. Is MUET recognised by Curtin? I cannot find MUET as a test to fulfill english language requirement on their official website. Can anyone help me?

This is the answer i received from the officer there via email..
''If you have SPM / 1119 english in grade C6 or better, then it is meeting the English requirement. MUET is not acceptable to Curtin, otherwise CUTE band C or better.''

Thank you very much. biggrin.gif

I have one more question...would E1119 still valid after three years? Let's say I sat for SPM in 2008, studied form 6 for two years and applied to Curtin, it would have been 2011. After three years, would EL1119 still valid? Because TOEFL and IELTS are only valid for two years and I fear by that time EL1119 would be considered 'expired'.
