Notes:

  1. All data is the sum of the whole year's activities;
  2. Full and fractional time staff data is a snapshot taken at 31 March while casual/session at 31 December;
  3. Staff data excludes staff employed at Curtin Malaysia, Curtin Singapore and other offshore campuses and partner locations;
  4. The discrepancy in the 2018 headcounts reported against the Commonwealth Government Higher Education staff data collection can be explained by the Government exclusion of staff employed at organisation units considered independent operations that are controlled entities of the University.
