Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Murdoch University International Study Centre Dubai, located in the heart of the impressive Dubai International Academic City. Established in 2007, we are a Dubai campus of Murdoch University, one of Australia’s most impressive emerging universities. Our home campus in Perth, Western Australia, has more than 22,000 students and 2,500 staff from across almost 100 different countries, studying in over 200 undergraduate and postgraduate courses or majors, ranging from Veterinary Science to Business to Philosophy. Murdoch has earned an international reputation for its teaching and research over the past 35 years, as it has grown and matured. In 2013, Murdoch stands at 57th in the Times Higher Education ranking of the world’s top 100 universities under 50 years old , the 6th highest of the 13 Australian universities included in the top 100, evidence of our commitment to exceptional teaching and learning for students and of our high-quality, high-impact research.
The degree you will earn at Murdoch Dubai is identical in its rigour and content to that taught to students at all of Murdoch’s campuses, whether in Perth (South Street, Rockingham, and Peel campuses), Dubai, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. We take great pride in the way that Murdoch Dubai emphasises the student experience, quality teaching, a forward-thinking and dynamic curriculum, and a multicultural ethos. With over 500 students, taught by academics from 14 countries, this is a stimulating and vibrant place to learn. The facilities we offer to students in Dubai are second to none: cutting-edge technology, modern teaching spaces and committed student learning support, backed by a dedicated and globally-educated faculty.
At our Dubai campus we offer a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs to students from across the region who have the ambition of attaining a prestigious Australian degree whilst studying within a supportive local environment. At the undergraduate level, we offer courses in Business (finance, management, and marketing), Information Technology (computer science and business information systems) and Media and Communications (journalism, , and sscreen production). At the postgraduate level, we offer a Master of Business Administration, a Master of Human Resource Management, and a Master of Education . We also teach a robust foundation programme catering to the needs of high school, international and mature students wishing to find their pathway into a university degree. Our students have the option to transfer credits earned within and across our network of campuses on a short or long-term basis, for a truly international learning experience.
We constantly strive to meet the unique challenges that face UAE students as they look to assume leadership roles in the region and across the world. All our graduates are prepared with the vital skills of communicating and creative thinking, with deep practical knowledge in their subject, and with an awareness of global perspectives. They are articulate and analytically-minded, with the confidence to take a place on the global stage.
It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Murdoch University in Dubai. We look forward to sharing with you in exciting and meaningful explorations of the changing world in which we live.
Dr Andrew Webster, Dean
