    9.0 /10

    I wanted to pursue my bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and I did my research for the best university for the course and Curtin University came out to be at top of my list, so I decided to do bachelor's from here. Apart from this university, I applied for four other universities. I applied here through the online admission portal and paid no application fee of the process.
