person giving a lecture

We can design programs and study tours to suit the needs of any group.

Programs can incorporate English language classes for a range of levels, as well as cultural activities, Perth sightseeing, university lectures and workshops, and specialised excursions.

English classes can be custom designed in closed groups or integrated into existing English language classes. A minimum of four to five weeks is recommended if your group wants integrated English language classes.

Why you should choose a customised Curtin English program:

  • custom-designed programs to suit your group’s needs
  • flexible study durations
  • programs can be run at any time of the year
  • wide range of activities and excursions
  • accommodation options: homestay or apartment-style.
