Future students

Explore our range of events and resources and discover how you can join Murdoch's extraordinary community of free-thinking students and academics.

If you're considering your first degree as a high school leaver or mature age student, you will be applying for what is known as an undergraduate degree (also known as a bachelor's degree). We offer a range of events and resources to help you understand how to get into Murdoch and what courses we offer.

We also offer events for parents and family members and teachers and career advisors to help you guide students through the transition to university.


  • Career and Information Evenings

    These events will tell you everything you need to know about studying at Murdoch. Attend a Career or Information Evening to learn more about the courses we offer in your area of interest and see how these will set you for a range of career paths. We also offer a range of general information evenings to talk you through the process of applying to Murdoch through TISC, directly, via our other admission pathways which assess eligibility using criteria such as a creative portfolio or evidence of work and life experience.

    Why attend?

    You’ll have the opportunity to hear first-hand what it’s like to study at Murdoch. Each event will feature a short presentation, followed by an expo, where you can meet leading academics, industry professionals, and talk to current and past students about their experience at Murdoch. You’ll also be able to ask about scholarships, admission requirements and admission pathways, as well as double major and double degree options.

    Light refreshments are provided and the events are open to future students and their family members or guardians.

    Please check back in early 2019 for a full list of events for the new year.

  • Horizons Summer School

    If you're starting Year 12 in 2019, our three-week Horizons Summer School will help you maximise your Year 12 results and kick-start your university degree. As part of the program, you’ll participate in lectures, workshops and labs, giving you the unique opportunity to experience university life while still at school. You'll work in small groups to address real-world problems under the guidance of internationally renowned lecturers and academics, together with mentoring from experienced Murdoch students.

    On completion of Murdoch Horizons Summer School, you'll receive a certificate and three points of credit towards a Murdoch degree, which is the equivalent of one subject or unit.
