Learning and Teaching
At Murdoch University, we strive to provide an outstanding educational experience for every one of our students.
Our courses, teaching facilities, support services and academic leadership programs are all designed to fully engage our students and provide them with an integrated learning experience that prepares them for the future – either in full-time employment or further studies.
The campus experience
We offer world-class teaching facilities for all students across our campuses in Western Australia and globally.
Our campus facilities are fully-operational. From our Engineering Pilot Plant to our Nursing Simulation Wards, electronic Moot Court, broadcast TV and Radio Studios, and practicing Veterinary Hospital, Murdoch students gain hands-on experience and service our local communities as part of their education.

Student learning and support services
Resources and services
Murdoch’s student support services are designed to recognise the needs of our students as individuals.
We offer free workshops, online toolkits, study-skill modules, peer and academic coaching and professional consultations to help students succeed at university.
We aim to empower our students with professional support and career advice, and help them build academic, social and life skills.
Inclusive education and support
Murdoch is committed to giving every student the opportunity to succeed at university, whatever their background.
We offer a range of enabling programs that provide pathways for students into tertiary studies, preparing them with the skills they need for university.
Our Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre is a cornerstone of our commitment, providing a vibrant community where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can access the academic and social support that will empower them to succeed in higher education.
Murdoch’s innovative curriculum offers courses that provide students with disciplinary expertise, alongside career skills and research knowledge.
Career-based learning underpins all our undergraduate courses from the first year of study. We run unique units, programs, and seminars for postgraduate coursework and research students, to arm them with the knowledge and skills required for their advanced levels of study.
Our courses are designed in partnership with industry and professional bodies. This provides our graduates and their employers with career opportunities designed for the future.
While studying a course at Murdoch, students also have access to Work Integrated Learning. Undertaking a work placement or internship in this program allows our students to work with business and industry before they graduate, preparing them for the workforce.
