Double majors or minors

Once you’ve accepted an offer to study at Murdoch, you can add a second major to your course to broaden your career options.


Completing a double major or adding a minor to your degree will help you expand your expertise and broaden your career prospects. Here’s what you need to know:

  • You can only apply for a second major or any minors after you have applied and been accepted to Murdoch for a single major.
  • Once you have received and accepted your offer to study, you will need to submit a written request to add a second major or minors to your enrolment record.
  • If you are a domestic student, you can request a double major or minors through MyAnswers.
  • If you are an international student, you can email the international admissions team to request a double major or minors.

When your second major or minor has been added, you will receive written confirmation. You can self-enrol in the units for the second major or minor before it is added to your record, as long as it is not a restricted major.

Restricted majors

You can’t add a major to every course because of student quotas. These courses are known as restricted majors:

  • Clinical Exercise Physiology
  • Nursing
  • Veterinary Science

If you meet the entry requirements and would like to to study a restricted major, please place it as your first preference when you apply.
