Murdoch University Dubai is a core branch campus of Murdoch University in Perth, Australia — one of the Top 100 Young Universities in the World. We have been rated 5-stars in 2022 by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), under their Higher Education Classification (HEC) system.

Murdoch University Dubai offers an internationally recognised Foundation, Diploma (International Year One) and Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees. All courses follow the identical academic requirements as the courses offered in Australia, taught by highly qualified international lecturers. The degrees awarded are issued in Australia and are the same as the ones conferred on campus in Australia. The university has three trimesters in a year (January, May and September) that enable new students to start their education in any of the three intakes and help current students complete their courses in a shorter period with the fast-track option.

The Dubai campus was launched over a decade ago and has recently relocated to a 27,000 sq ft modern and purpose-built campus in Dubai Knowledge Park.

The flexible learning options are tailored to allow students to design their course of study by their requirements. Why choose between marketing and management when you can do both? The double major option allows students to combine two different disciplines into one well-rounded education without extending their time at university.

The university has been rated 5-star for its Employability, Programme Strength, Internationalisation, Facilities and Career Support efforts and also offers a host of academic merit-based scholarships and bursaries to students across all programmes, enabling them to easily start their educational journey.
