Find your path to Murdoch

Murdoch is a place where diverse experiences are celebrated. That’s why we offer different ways to get into uni so that people from a range of backgrounds can access tertiary education.

If you don’t currently meet our admission requirements, check out our enabling pathway courses that can help you build your skills and get into uni.

Find your enabling pathway course

Our enabling pathway courses are free and can improve your literacy, numeracy and critical thinking skills. Available on-campus or online, these courses are designed to get you ready for university study, whether you didn’t quite get the ATAR you need or have been out of study for a while.

By successfully completing either OnTrack Flex, K-Track, or OnTrack Sprint, you could qualify for direct entry into a wide range of undergraduate courses with a selection rank of 70.

Without OnTrack I do not believe I would have attended university and would have spent my most valuable years thinking that higher education would be beyond my reach.
