Entry requirement questions
Murdoch does not have prerequisite subjects for the undergraduate courses as we are a strong promoter of a well rounded education. However, we would recommend you have Math for the business course and remember that you will also need to demonstrate competence in English.
Students who require English proficiency scores can answer either IELTS or a TOEFL exam and need to meet the following requirements:
|English language proficiency tests||Score|
|6.0 (no individual band less than 6.0)|
TOEFL – Paper based
|550 (with the Test of Written English 5)|
TOEFL – Computer based
|213 (with the Test of Written English 5)|
TOEFL – Internet based
|80 (no band less that 20)|
The process carried out by external accreditation agencies to ensure that an institution offering degrees and/or certificate programs has the resources and necessary infrastructure to meet international academic standards. This is ensured through an extensive and rigorous process of evaluation of the following areas:
|Institution’s mission/vision||Educational practices||Administration|
|Faculty||Financial stability||Policies and student services, etc.|
Institutions are expected to maintain international standards and are subject to review and inspection periodically. Accreditation must be verified by an external agency rather than an interested party such as the institution itself, its parent company or a student.
There is no entrance exam or interview. Your application is assessed on the basis of your previous academic grades.
Application fees will not be refunded.
Early applications will be given first preference. Therefore, we would advise you to apply at the earliest. Please contact the Admissions department for closing dates.
Murdoch does not accept GED certificate. Students with the GED certificate would need to take a recognised foundation course or successfully complete one year of full-time university studies.
To take a double major, students simply take the core units from another major in place of their general elective units. Dual majors can be done within the same duration.
For the undergraduate programs we now have three intakes a year – September, January and May. The next intake is Sunday, 7th of September 2014.
The degree awarded in Dubai is exactly the same as awarded in Australia. Both campuses have the same admissions requirements, follow an identical academic curriculum, use common faculty and offer the same careers service and student service support. There is no difference therefore, the degree awarded is exactly the same as conferred on campus in Australia.
