The Murdoch Difference

The Murdoch Difference

Professor Peter Waring, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Transnational Education & Dean, and Dr Paola Magni, Deputy Dean, are both from Murdoch University and based in Singapore to oversee the academic aspects of the programmes and ensure a high standard of academic delivery here. This is an exclusive arrangement by Murdoch University.


The collective expertise of Murdoch University Singapore Office’s teaching staff, which comprises both industry experts and academics with PhD qualifications, allows students to gain practical learning and critical thinking skills.


Technology-Integrated Learning

Technology-integrated learning refers to a study experience in which students achieve a given set of learning outcomes by interacting in more than one medium.

This approach involves the meaningful and balanced use of digital media such as recorded lectures, podcasts, text or graphics, with other elements such as videos or quizzes. It may even encompass active learning methods such as student-generated blogs, where appropriate.

With technology-integrated learning, students will not only reap the benefits of face-to-face guidance and collaboration, but also – in carrying out some of their learning online – benefit from the added flexibility and control over the time, place, path and pace of learning.

Studiosity — an on-demand, study-support service


Students will be given additional academic support via access to Studiosity, an on-demand, study-support service. Trained network subject specialists are available to offer you help.

Student Support

Classes will be held regularly, with full academic support provided throughout your programme.

Our smaller classes (with a maximum of 50 students) ensure a supportive learning environment, with more personal attention given to each student.
