Welcome to Curtin Challenge, where you can develop your skills, build your networks, and shape your future. Challenge is a fun and interactive way to learn, and is just one of the many ways Curtin University is transforming your University experience.

The Curtin Leaders Program and Careers Illuminate Challenge are the first in a range of options you can choose from. Participating in a challenge earns you points towards badges, allows you to level up to become a community mentor and expert, and contributes to the Curtin Extra Certificate. Upcoming challenges will include scenarios that immerse you in real world problem solving, and contribute to sustainable futures across the globe.

It’s all about serious games – and who knew serious could be so fun?!

Curtin Leaders Program

The Curtin Leaders Program combines leadership skills modules with volunteering to help you learn valuable study skills, boost your employability and get you involved in your community. You’ll learn more about yourself, how you work in teams and how to make positive change in your community.

As a Curtin student, the program is open to you at any stage of your degree. You can try a couple of our modules, or you can complete the Curtin Leaders Program and get official recognition on the Curtin Extra Certificate. Completing the program involves the following 3 steps:

Step 1: Complete 5 leadership skills modules

Step 2: Participate in volunteering

Apply your leadership skills and knowledge to a real-world experience by completing a minimum of 10 hours of volunteering.

Step 3: Reflect on your experience

Your Privacy

Curtin Challenge collects information to provide better learning experiences for all participants. We collect information in two ways: the information you enter into your profile, and the information we get from your experience as you work through the challenges. This information is used in ways we now know. For example, if a quiz question is consistently answered incorrectly, your information will help us change the question to make it more understandable. This information will also be used in ways we don’t know just yet, with the goal always being to improve and personalise your experience.

At Curtin University of Technology, the privacy of our students, staff and the people we deal with is very important. Much of the information that the University collects in order to provide the services that it does, is "personal information". For details of how the University will collect, store, use and disclose your personal information please refer to the full privacy statement.
