Our pathway institutions
For students wishing to commence their pathway we work with institutions that offer English and academic pathways if you are unable to meet direct entry requirements to Murdoch University. We work closely with these institutions to help you get ready for university life and provide a smooth transition to studying your chosen Murdoch degree.
Studying with one of our pathway institutions means 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 Letter of Offer is a combination of two or more offers, for example, a pathway course such as a Diploma or an English course, followed by a Bachelor, 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.
