Curtin University has been actively present in Singapore since 1986 through the establishment of links with reputable private educational providers in Singapore, namely the Singapore Human Resource Institute, Marketing Institute of Singapore, and the Singapore Institute of Materials Management. Prior to the establishment of its full-fledged independent campus in Singapore, degrees from Curtin were awarded through these partners.[5]

Curtin's 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) campus in Singapore allows the University to be able to provide courses on its own merit. All Curtin University courses are now delivered at the campus commonly known as Curtin Singapore. Students at the Singapore campus are awarded the same degree and transcripts as their peers at the other campuses. The overall investment in this venture is expected to be S$40 Million.
