Murdoch University Dubai promises an uninterrupted educational experience as it looks forward to welcoming students to its new campus

Our lives have changed in unprecedented ways in the last few months but as humans, we remain resilient, agile and hopeful. These same qualities have been displayed by all our students and staff since we transitioned to our Digital Campus on March 8. For us at Murdoch University Dubai, the shift wasn't just about online learning but to bring the entire campus experience to our students who couldn't visit the premises anymore.

From online career counselling to virtual bingo nights, Murdoch University Dubai's Digital Campus has kept our close-knit community engaged and connected. Classes have been scheduled as per the original timetables and our faculty and student support staff have continued to remain accessible to all students. We have also rolled out a host of free webinars geared to help students better manage their time and focus on their well-being during these surreal times.

Despite the pandemic, we also completed the fit-out and move to our brand-new, modern, 27,000 sq ft campus in Dubai Knowledge Park. Murdoch University Dubai eagerly awaits the opportunity to welcome everyone to this inspiring new space and continue to cultivate our community of global free-thinkers and world-ready graduates, joining our 70,000-plus alumni all over the world, once the government provides guidance on reopening of campuses.

Being a branch campus of an Australian university, we offer internationally-recognised, Australian-accredited degrees to all our graduates. In fact, Murdoch Dubai's degrees are actually flown in from Perth and are exactly the same as the ones conferred to students at our home campus in Australia. Our students also have the option to start their degree with us and transfer to our campuses in Perth or Singapore after a year.

This should be a sign of encouragement to any student in the UAE whose higher education plans might have been disrupted. You can start any of our TEQSA-accredited pathway, undergraduate or postgraduate courses in September 2020 and consider a campus transfer in the future.

Murdoch University Dubai is at the forefront of providing a high-quality, career-ready Australian education to students in the UAE and we continue to do so on our Digital Campus and hopefully soon at our new home in Dubai Knowledge Park.
