Inter-Varsity Sport

You can represent Curtin University and become a member of the Carnaby’s team at Inter-Varsity and Uni National events throughout the year.


Some competitions are participation focussed and open for anyone to compete. However, other competitions are more competitive and places in those teams eagerly sought. Many teams use the Western Series Inter-Varsity competitions as their lead-in events to representing Curtin University at the UniNationals. Competition formats and rules will be released to selected team members as they become available.
Western Series Inter-Varsity events are FREE for students.

To be eligible to compete for Curtin University, athletes must be enrolled at Curtin University and must be able to show their student card upon request of any event officials. Athletes will be provided with a Team Shirt to wear during the event. Any uniform is the property of Curtin Stadium and must be returned at the end of the competition.


Western Series Inter-Varsity Competition

Curtin will be competing against ECU, UWA, Murdoch and Notre Dame in both semesters across different sports.

Register your interest here and check back for updates throughout the year.


Team training and Inter-Varsity team selections will commence in Semester 1.  Once you have registered your interest you will be notified of the training times for your sport.

In 2021, UniSport Australia, in conjunction with the five Western Australian universities, is launching the Western Series Inter-Varsity competition, a calendar of inter-varsity events where students can represent their university and compete against other universities. These
events may also act as a lead into UniNationals hosted on the Gold Coast from 25 September – 1 October 2021.
