Location & Culture

Click to Open

Known as Australia’s sunniest and most environmentally attractive city, cosmopolitan Perth is a study in contrasts – like skyscrapers and white beaches, and sophistication with a laid-back vibe. Many of its 1.8 million people take advantage of downtime to get outside for fun and games. Suburban Murdoch University is located 11 miles south of Perth and 6 miles east of Fremantle – or Freo. This funky port city is where you’ll find most students outside of class. With its alternative vibe, Freo is home to many green initiatives in Western Australia, and boasts a lively arts, entertainment, and music scene.

The Culture

EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

  • Get a taste of life in rural Australia with a weekend family homestay.
  • Take advantage of part-time work – many students opt for up to 20 hours a week – to earn extra income and get a feel for life beyond university.
  • Get to know Australia’s unique flora and fauna with an interactive hike led by an Aboriginal guide, or take a spooky night tour of historic Fremantle prison – built by its very first convicts.
  • Take a surfing lesson or become a fan of Australian rules football.
  • Depending on the season, visit beautiful Rottnest Island or the southwest rainforest region.

PROJECTS

INTERNSHIPS

Bring home more than amazing memories with a valuable international internship. Possibilities include:

  • Sustainable Community Development internship. Contribute to a water auditing and conservation strategies project in Fremantle, or research efficiency of transportation modes in Perth with a Sustainable Community Development internship.

The program details

This program allows U.S. students to dig into Murdoch University’s liberal arts programs and strong offerings in business, media and film studies, communications, and field-based sciences, while they learn about Australian life and culture. Murdoch – the only Australian university to receive The Good Universities Guide’s five-star rating for graduate satisfaction for 12 out of the last 13 years – hosts 18,000 students enrolled in arts, science and engineering, and health sciences. In addition to strong academics, students have many opportunities for experiential learning via internships (including a parliamentary option in fall) and excursions in and around Perth.

All courses are taught by Murdoch faculty which, proportionately, hold the highest number of doctorates of all Australian universities.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Murdoch University uses a point system. The normal full-time course load is 12 points each semester, equivalent to 16 U.S. semester credits. Most subjects are designated three-point classes. Students are eligible to enroll in any course for which they are qualified, except for a few subjects at the Veterinary and Chiropractic Schools. A typical subject consists of two hours of lectures and one to two hours of tutorials per week, with additional lab work in the sciences. Many science classes also involve fieldwork.

  • GRADING

    Assessment is typically based on essays, project reports, a midterm, tutorial/seminar participation and performance, and practical and final exams. Murdoch uses a five-point grading system: High Distinction (HD); Distinction (D); Credit (C); Pass (P); and Fail (F). Grades are converted to a U.S. grading scale.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Australian universities typically require students to take responsibility for learning, and encourage self-motivation and self-discipline. Contact hours seem low, but students are expected to do significant directed reading on their own.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

Curriculum

Program Credit

  • Total semester credits: 16 semester/24 quarter hours
  • Murdoch University courses: 3 local credits/4 U.S. semester credits
  • CIEE course, Intercultural Communication and Leadership: 3 semester/4.5 quarter hours

Students are required to take 12 Murdoch University points per semester. A typical course load is 4 courses.

  • One course must focus on Australian content.
  • Students who want to take additional courses need special permission and are required to pay additional fees to Murdoch University.

Note: This course listing is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract between CIEE and any applicant, student, institution, or other party. The courses, as described, may be subject to change as a result of ongoing curricular revisions, assignment of lecturers and teaching staff, and program development. Courses may be canceled due to insufficient enrollment.

CIEE ELECTIVE

Students enrolled in this course develop skills, knowledge, and understanding that will help them communicate and engage more appropriately and effectively in Perth as well as in other intercultural contexts. Students explore various topics in intercultural communication in the context of their experience abroad, and practice intercultural learning processes that they can apply when working across difference in a wide variety of contexts. Participants increase their own cultural self-awareness and develop personal leadership skills to help them become more effective in an interdependent world. Learning involves in-class exercises, active reflection, discussion, readings, field reports, short lectures, and out-of-class activities that engage students in the local culture on a deeper level. At the end of the course, each successful participant receives a CIEE CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT IN INTERCULTURAL EDUCATION (CAIE). Listing this certificate on your resume helps differentiate you from other candidates during future job interviews. There are no prerequisites; all you need is an interest in international culture, intercultural communications, and Australian culture and society.
