Highlights

  • Murdoch's International Office subsidizes a ten-day camping trip for students to visit the vast and beautiful North-West as part of their study abroad program, allowing students to experience the "real" Australia by touring remote beaches, deep gorges and vast distances of the famous "outback" and a three-day trip around Southwest WA.
  • Every semester they also run a series of social events which are aimed at allowing students to make the most of Perth and Australia, and all of these events are also subsidised – the
    calendar of events changes from semester to semester, but in recent semesters they have offered the following: surfing lessons, street art walking tours; day trip to the Pinnacles; trips to Rottnest Island.
  • They also offer formal Welcome and Farewell events, and run the MEXSA Global Buddy programme, which allows exchange students to connect with Murdoch students and form friendships with
    local and international students.
