Pathways for international students
Are you an international student aiming to study at Murdoch, but do not currently meet our minimum English or academic requirements? We have a range of options available through our partner institutions that can help you meet our admission requirements and get you into a Murdoch degree.
Our preferred pathway partners
We have four preferred partners who offer English and academic pathways. We work closely with them to ensure you are ready for university life and to provide a smooth transition to studying your chosen Murdoch degree.
Studying with one of our preferred pathway providers is also a great way to experience Murdoch. You will be invited to our events and social activities where you can explore our campus and connect with our staff and students. You could also be eligible to apply for a packaged Letter of Offer with Murdoch University.
What is a packaged Letter of Offer?
A packaged offer is a combination of two or more offers, for example, a pathway course such as a Diploma followed by a Bachelor course or an English (ELICOS) course followed by a Masters course. The benefit of a packaged offer is that you can package two or more courses on the one student visa.
