Accepted English proficiency tests

The following tests satisfy our minimum English language requirements for undergraduate, postgraduate and research (HDR) courses.

The test must have been undertaken within two years of application, however, they may be used for entry until the next semester intake.

Update: Applicants who are unable to sit an approved English proficiency test, due to testing centre closures in response to COVID-19, Curtin University accepts approved test result that was undertaken within three years of application. This temporary measure is applicable for applications submitted in 2020 and will be reviewed at the end of the year.
