Where possible, scholarships staff visit relevant lectures throughout the different Faculties to promote industry sponsored scholarships. These scholarships not only provide financial benefits but also opportunities to develop links with potential employers.

Throughout the year, the Scholarships Office hosts information sessions during each semester, Orientation Weeks, and information booths at Curtin and High School Careers Fair events.

The Teacher's Big Day Out is catered towards career coordinators, teachers, principals and heads of year groups. Curtin experts cover information on courses, admissions, scholarships and transition to university.

Each year there are two parent information evenings for parents of year 10 and year 12 students. The Scholarships office attend both providing information about the scholarships process and what will be available.

Open Day is a chance for Curtin's various faculties and departments to show students, parents, partners, and the wider community what they have to offer. Open Day is also a key date in the Scholarships Calendar - it is the day all scholarships for future students open for application.
