MURDOCH UNIVERSITY A Preference To Make A Difference

It’s hard not to get wound up in results. What will my ATAR be? What university will I get into? Does my future rest on my ATAR results? 

The Murdoch University community of students has something in common: the desire to make a difference. That’s why a decision to make a Murdoch course your first preference is a decision to have an impact on the world, both while you’re studying and after you are employed.

Our lecturers and staff carefully support and nurture this desire from the moment you begin your degree, right through to the celebration of your graduation. Class sizes tend to be smaller, lecturers are more likely to know your name. Challenging the status quo, asking the big questions and critical, open thinking are all encouraged and rewarded at Murdoch. Our team of First Year Advisors also recently achieved national recognition for the support they provide our students at an individual, school and university level. It’s all part of the Murdoch experience.

A Murdoch education is geared towards the world beyond university. Students work on making a difference on real, global issues such as food security, free trade agreements, democracy, mining, workplace law, healthcare and more. Practical experience is a strong focus across all our Schools. Many of our students also take advantage of the opportunity to explore a double major to make themselves even more uniquely employable.

Murdoch is the only public university in Western Australia to receive a five-star graduate employment rating by students, in the Hobsons Good Universities Guide 2015. That means Murdoch students graduate career-ready and are more likely to gain employment and make a difference in their chosen field of study.
