  • The expertise of our academic team:
"Our students’ learning experience is facilitated by dedicated, enthusiastic and well-qualified academic staff with a broad range of industry experience, i.e. they have both the industry know-how as well as academic qualifications to provide optimal teaching."
  • The one thing students should graduate with:
"Murdoch Dubai is known for creating opportunities. Our courses with flexible options offer ideal synergies to maximise your learning potential. You should graduate with a sense of accomplishment by having made full use of these opportunities."
  • The biggest challenge facing future generations of media and communication graduates:
"You will be entering a challenging but exciting world. By being multi-skilled, flexible and innovative you stand a good chance of realising your potential in today’s technologically advanced communication environment, where the traditional converges with a multitude of new media platforms on a globalised scale. We help you become multi-skilled in these fields – not only in theory but also through hands-on training in our state of the art radio, television and photographic studio facilities."
  • How you facilitate industry experience:
"Murdoch Dubai is often approached by employers in the media and communication industry to nominate students for internships. This provides our students with opportunities to gain practical experience that will serve them well when they enter the job market after graduation. By studying at Murdoch Dubai’s School of Media Communication and Culture you indeed become a welcome explorer of the ‘new’ world."
