As you prepare to leave home to begin your studies at Murdoch, there are a number of arrangements you will need to make and information you will need to know to assist you in achieving a smooth transition.
Murdoch International prepares a "Pre-departure Guide" each semester which contains information about preparing to leave and what to expect once you arrive at Murdoch. This will also provide you with information on budgeting and living costs in Perth. It is essential that you read this guide.
