Answers

Does Murdoch have any pre-requisite subjects for the undergraduate courses?

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.

Do I have to answer an IELTS or a TOEFL exam and what are the required scores to qualify?/strong>

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

IELTS

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)

What makes an institution accredited?

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.
curriculum

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.

Is there an entrance exam or an interview?

There is no entrance exam or interview. Your application is assessed on the basis of your previous academic grades.

Can my application fee be refunded if I am not accepted?

Application fees will not be refunded.

When should I apply? I am in my final year of high school, and I will graduate in May/June?

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.

Do you accept GED certificate?

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.

How can I take double majors?

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.

When are your intakes for the undergraduate programs?

For the undergraduate programs we now have three intakes a year – September, January and May. The next intake is Sunday, 7th of September 2014.

Is the degree obtained at MUISCD of equivalent standards to one obtained by students studying in Australia?

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.
