International students

Packaged students

You may receive an offer if you’ve completed a course with one of our off-campus partner institutions. If you’re an international student, this offer will allow you to apply for a visa covering the full duration of your course in Australia.

When you receive an offer as a packaged student, you will need to complete an Acceptance of Offer form.

Undergraduate, honours and postgraduate courses

Before responding to your Murdoch offer, please read and understand your offer letter and Acceptance of Offer, and decide whether you will accept, defer or reject the offer.

Accepting your offer

To accept your offer and secure your place at Murdoch, email us with:

  • a copy of your passport (page with photo ID)
  • evidence of the payment made to accept the offer (Deposit on Offer + SSAF + OSHC)

Once you have accepted your place, you will be able to activate your student account using the Murdoch student number you’ll find in your offer letter. You can then enrol online.

Deferring your course

In certain circumstances, you may be able to defer the commencement of your studies to a different teaching period. To apply for a deferral, email us with:

  • your Murdoch University student number (from your offer letter)

You may not be able to defer if:

  • you are not able to produce valid documentation to show that the admission requirements will be met for the new commencement date of your study; or
  • you have received a Confirmation of Enrolment and have no compelling or compassionate circumstances beyond your control that impact your ability to commence the course or impact your wellbeing. Such circumstances will be considered on an individual basis, and may include, but are not limited to:
    • a student visa has not been granted in time to commence
    • a serious illness or injury supported by a medical certificate
    • a bereavement of a close family member, supported by a death certificate if possible
