Welcome to Murdoch University in Dubai, UAE. We are one of Australia’s leading universities in Dubai and a place where free thinkers from all over the world come together to make a difference. We're proud of our international reputation for excellence in teaching, research and student satisfaction.
Murdoch University in Dubai is located in the heart of the impressive Dubai International Academic City . Established in 2007, we are a branch campus of Murdoch University, one of Australia’s leading emerging universities. Our home campus in Perth, Western Australia, has more than 22,000 students and 2,500 staff from across almost 100 different countries, studying in over 200 undergraduate and postgraduate courses or majors, over a comprehensive range of disciplines and professions. Murdoch has earned an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research over the past 35 years, as it has grown and matured. In 2014, Murdoch stands 60th in the Times Higher Education ranking of the world’s top 100 universities under 50 years old, the 8th highest of the 14 Australian universities included in the top 100, evidence of our commitment to exceptional teaching and learning for students and of our high-quality research.
At Murdoch Dubai you will earn a fully accredited Australian degree with its associated international recognition. All our programs are accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) in Australia and locally authorized by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). The same transferable standards apply regardless of whether you are studying in Perth, in Dubai or one of our other international or regional campuses. Our students have the option to transfer credits earned across our network of campuses on a short or long-term basis, for a truly international learning experience.
We place great emphasis on the quality of our students’ study and university experience. We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching and curriculum content and our multicultural ethos. With over 600 students, taught by international faculty, from around the world, Murdoch University Dubai is a stimulating and vibrant place to learn. We provide excellent facilities to our students: cutting-edge technology, modern teaching spaces and committed student learning support, backed by a dedicated and globally educated faculty. We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. At the undergraduate level, we offer courses in Business (finance, management, and marketing), Information Technology (computer science and business information systems) and Media and Communications (journalism, public relations, and screen production). At the postgraduate level, we offer a Master of Business Administration, a Master of Human Resource Management, and a Master of Education. Students not qualifying for direct entry and seeking an alternative pathway into university can consider completing our associated foundation programme. This caters to the needs of high school, international and mature students wishing to gain entry into a university degree.
We constantly strive to meet the unique challenges that face students in the UAE as they look to assume leadership roles in the region and across the world. All our graduates are prepared with the vital skills of communicating and creative thinking, with deep practical knowledge in their subject, and with an awareness of global perspectives. They are articulate and analytically-minded, with the confidence to take a place on the global stage. It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Murdoch University in Dubai.
