Welcome message from the Academic Director
Welcome to the September 2016 trimester!
Welcome to the start of our new academic year. This past year has been great for Murdoch University and Murdoch Dubai. Exactly one year ago Murdoch Dubai was opening our new wing in Block 11 and was looking to surpass 750 enrolled students. A year later and we are looking forward to nearly 1,000 students on campus this year.
At our home campus, a new permanent vice-chancellor, Professor Eeva Leinonen was formally invested in August and should bring many great initiatives to our university. Professor Leinonen has already paid a visit to our campus during the summer and had an inspiring meeting with our faculty and staff.
Due to many students taking holiday during the summer and Ramadan, we had limited student live activities during the May trimester, but we have a full schedule for this trimester including Orientation Week, a Fresher’s Party, a Murdoch Comedy contest, and a Wadi Adventure. Last year we held a trip to Spain for nearly 30 students between the September and January trimesters. This year we expect an even better trip with even more students. Please keep an eye on our Student Life Website for information about all of the upcoming activities.
I look forward to seeing you all during the trimester and wish you every success in your studies. We have a great line-up of faculty for the coming trimester and with good effort on your part, it can be your most successful trimester ever.
All the best,
Academic Director - Murdoch University Dubai
