What the students say

"Studying at Curtin University had made me realized the beauty of the city which is located in Miri, Sarawak. The environment in the campus I would say is nature themed whereby you can feel relaxed as you can hear the noises from the birds and trees. Because of that, I tend to focus on my studies easily and I don’t feel rush on everything that I’m doing"- Anna D.
