Jawad Qazi.JPG "Murdoch staff and faculty are amongst the friendliest people I have ever met. They interact with the students at ease. I chose Murdoch because I wanted to continue my studies in the UAE rather than move abroad. After exploring my options I found that, based on my preferred field of study, Murdoch has the best programs and facilities available in the UAE."
