Curtin Sarawak is renowned for its links with industry and business, and for the practical and applied nature of its courses, which are identical to those offered at Curtin's main campus in Western Australia. Its courses are also endorsed by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and professional bodies, ensuring wide recognition.
The university is one of eight granted self-accreditation status by the MQA and achieved a Tier 5 or 'Excellent' rating in its SETARA rating of institutions of higher learning, which placed Curtin Sarawak among the top 18 universities in Malaysia.
To best meet student and industry needs, Curtin Sarawak applies Curtin's 'triple-i' model, which ensures industry links, intercultural and indigenous awareness and interdisciplinary study are embedded into each course curriculum.

Curtin Sarawak offers an exciting range of double major combinations from its Bachelor of Commerce programme. They provide a stronger and more applicable education experience, allow students to choose courses to suit their needs, and offer more opportunities to gain practical industry experience. What's more, they can complete the requirements for two degrees in less time than it would take to complete two degrees sequentially and they may consider completing one major at Curtin Sarawak and the other at the main campus.
Furthermore, the introduction of common first year pre-majors for all undergraduate programmes gives students the option of completing their pre-majors at Curtin Sarawak at a fraction of the fees for equivalent courses in Australia before embarking on their majors at the main campus.
