Meet the new Murdoch Handbook

The new Murdoch Handbook may look different, but you can still find all the same information that was in the old version. It’s now integrated with myMurdoch so the Handbook remains your first stop when looking for anything related to courses, while myMurdoch continues to be the place to find a range of helpful information including important dates and deadlines.

Old Handbook Menu

1 Search Handbook

Although it looks very different to the old version, the Murdoch University Handbook is still the place to search for up-to-date information on courses, co-majors, majors, minors or units.

A key difference with the new Handbook is that courses now have their own record, distinct from majors. For example, you will find an entry for the major Marine Biology (MJ-MRNB) as well as the Bachelor of Science course (B1317).

You can find the overall structure for a course on the course page, including any associated majors, whereas a major page will only display the structure for the major itself.

More detailed information is available in the Quick Reference Guide.
