What are the computer requirements for an online student? 

A computer and reliable internet access are crucial to online studies. As students completing their course fully online or via Open Universities Australia (OUA) access all learning materials online, it is recommended that you are familiar with email use, word processing and web browsing. The minimum system requirements for online study are listed on the Blackboard help webpage

Curtin offers a range of free or discounted software to students to assist throughout your studies.
