Degrees Offered: 


Murdoch University Dubai is an Australian university campus located in Dubai Knowledge Park, in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; it is a branch campus of Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. Murdoch University Dubai was inaugurated in Dubai International Academic City in 2008 by Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The campus was extended to 27,000 square feet, double its original size, in 2020. The new campus, which opened in July 2020, was designed by Woods Bagot, and constructed by KPS. It is intended to support expanded facilities in Artificial Intelligence and cybersecurity. The completed multi-million dollar campus sat empty for a period because of restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, in a period where new admissions for institutions across Dubai fell by 50%. The University established a hardship fund for students impacted by the pandemic. The university is a joint-venture between Murdoch University and the Navitas Middle East. During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, the University was involved in a collaborative project with Khalifa University investigating how the novel coronavirus was able to be transmitted from animals, such as bats, to humans. Murdoch Dubai offers foundation, diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Business, IT, Communications, Psychology and Education. It is an Amazon Web Services Academy member institution and recognised by the Dubai Knowledge and Human Development Authority as achieving both a five star employability rating and a 91.1% satisfaction rate for teaching and learning. Murdoch Dubai has been cited as one of the 16 best-known UAE universities in 2020. The present Dean of Murdoch Dubai was previously Deputy President of the University Academic Council at Murdoch in Perth, where he served since 1994 as Deputy Dean of the School of Arts and Associate Dean Learning and Teaching of the School of Arts. ..More on Wikipedia

Campus Life

Visiting a college can give you a feel for life on campus

Many students say that a college’s size, location and campus “personality” were major factors in their final choice. A college’s student body is an important part of that equation. Ask yourself these questions: Are you interested in being part of a diverse community with people from many different backgrounds? Do you want to be around students who are interested in sports, studying, politics or something else?

Do you need to choose a major before choosing a college?

No. In most cases, you’ll have plenty of time to choose a major. Most colleges don’t require students to declare a major until the end of their sophomore year, and many students change their major at least once. Some majors, especially in science and engineering, require more specific coursework, so students often need to declare their major a bit earlier.
