Course switcher criteria

If you feel your current Curtin undergraduate course isn’t for you, you may be able to switch to a different course, provided you meet the course switcher criteria below.

If you meet the criteria, you can change to a different course by applying internally through the Admissions Office. There is a cut-off date each semester for course switching. The date for each semester can be found on the application deadlines page.
