Studying Abroad and overseas exploration is essential for a broad-minded university student. The chance to leave home and mix it with students from all over the world is an opportunity that few people take up, why? – one can only wonder!
Hi, My name is Carol and I’m the regional manager for Europe and the Americas at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. As part of my job here at Murdoch, I am fortunate enough to promote Murdoch’s wonderful Study Abroad program.
Murdoch’s Study Abroad program has been running for approximately 20 years and the popularity of the program grows from strength to strength each year. The program gives international students the opportunity to spend one or two semesters of their undergraduate degree in Perth, whilst earning credit which can be transferred back to their home country university. The strength of the program can be attributed to a number of reasons; the flexibility, structure, range and quality of Murdoch courses, the ease of which students can transfer credits back to their home country and simply the gorgeous destination that is Perth and Western Australia!
Murdoch has an impressive and diverse student population, with over 90 countries represented on campus. The Study Abroad and Exchange program is mostly represented by North American and German students, with smaller cohorts of students from countries such as Malaysia, Scandinavia, UK, Switzerland, Austria and South Africa.
Contradictory to the name, ‘Study Abroad’ is not just about study. Murdoch University aims to provide a total experience that is second to none. Part of the Study Abroad experience is our unique 10-day fun-filled trip to the rugged North West of Western Australia. All those TV commercials you may have seen with spectacular landscapes and magnificent beaches are yours to experience first-hand.
You will visit unique remote outback, World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef (Western Australia’s answer to the Great Barrier Reef), the breathtaking gorges, flora and fauna of Karijini National Park, the World Heritage listed Monkey Mia in Shark Bay (where dolphins swimming close to the shore and greet you, hoping to be fed) and much more! Students often comment that the “North West” trip was the highlight of their trip to Western Australia.
So, come join us for a truly outstanding academic and cultural experience you won’t ever forget! Murdoch University-Study Abroad!
