It's the highest-ranked University in my state that offers an enabling program. It's a pathway for me to get into the highest University, the University of Western Australia (e.g. UWA) in my state and study something that's only offered by that University in my state, which is linguistics. I'm not required to pay upfront, in Australia, Australian citizens can get government loans that have 0% interest and the amount that gets paid back is determined upon how much you earn and if you have a job, receiving government help, homeless, etc.
Curtin University offered the double degree I was searching for and was suitable for entry. After graduating in 2017, I enrolled straight from High School and started study 6 months later. The fees throughout the course are subsidized and loaned by the government which was my only option for University.
Curtin University has a branch university in Mauritius (Curtin Mauritius). I had the choice to study in Mauritius and graduate there itself. Though, I wanted to have international recognition when graduating, as well as discover different cultures, through a real uni life. I completed the first year of my BITS course in Mauritius and currently doing my second year in Australia, where I will also be graduating.
I heard it had a good commerce course and a strong student culture. The major I wanted to do was offered at this uni. It was close to wearing I live and where I currently work. My high school friends would be there.
Yes - high achievers scholarship of 15000. This is given to be in increments of 2500 a semester too
Liked it. The atmosphere was absolutely amazing and all the people were so nice when I went for the open day. I felt like the course was also just my calling - it had so many components I loved and I just had my heart set.
One of the few universities that offer a bachelors in Physiotherapy in Perth, I was offered a scholarship and a few of my mate go to this university as well. It is also a highly reputable college that ranks highly amongst universities around the world.
Highly recommended by parents, staff, peers. It was one of the 2 the only universities in my state to offer architecture and the other uni seemed very pretentious, hard to get into and not recommended by people who went there.
It had a high ranking than the other college that offered my course. The campus was larger and more catered to what I wanted as a student and it was also located closer to cheaper rental accommodation off-campus.
