Travel while you learn

Murdoch University is continuing to promote overseas opportunities, as they give invaluable experience to a student’s degree! We are accepting enquiries and applications from students wishing to go abroad after 1st June 2022. However, we advise that students do NOT make any contributions towards flights, program fees, accommodation, visas or any other overseas-study related expenses. All Murdoch University outbound student travel (including exchange, study abroad, short courses and internship activities) remains suspended until further notice in accordance with the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs’ international travel advice.

If you’ve dreamed of travelling or living overseas, this is your chance to see the world and experience new cultures, people and places, without putting your degree on hold.

Our overseas study and internship programs range from two weeks to a year, and you can receive credit towards your Murdoch degree. You can even combine two programs, so you could spend a winter abroad in Europe, then do an exchange semester in Asia, or a semester in the USA, followed by an internship in Canada.

Find out more detailed information about all things abroad by joining our Murdoch Outbound LMS Community.


Career outcomes from learning abroad

Studies across the globe are finding that students with international study experience strengthen a range of skills highly valued by employers, including time management, communication, problem solving, crisis management and understanding of other people and cultures. When you study or intern overseas, you will:

Explore new places and learn about different cultures

Add value to your resume and boost your employability

Try new things, build confidence and make friends for life

I got way more than credit points from my semester abroad. I met wonderful people, explored things I never thought I would study, proved a lot to myself.Cameron – Exchange to BOKU University, Austria
