Currently, students may transfer from their admission in a course at a Partner location to any of Murdoch’s Perth campuses. Those students who have not successfully completed all units but who wish to transfer to a Murdoch Perth campus may do so, providing that they re-enrol in units that they have not passed when they are at the Murdoch Perth campus. The transfer of students in this category is subject to Murdoch’s prior approval.

Time Per-unit of Study

Study at Murdoch is based on a system of credit points that are completed towards the requirements of the course. Units generally have a value of 3 or 4 credit points. The guideline adopted by the University in determining the number of credit points represented by each unit is that the full-time student load in a standard semester is 12 credit points. One credit point reflects an average student workload of 50 hours. Thus a unit with a value of 3 credit points should engage roughly a quarter of a full-time student's available time and effort. This is an inclusive estimate, including all lectures, tutorials and/or laboratory classes, personal reading, and assignments required for the unit. However, if the subject area is new or if English is the student’s second language, more study time may be needed.
