A golden hello for international students at Murdoch U

Murdoch U is offering international students a discount on fees. The university refers to “international welcome scholarships” but university deposits in student tuition fee debit accounts look like a discount to CMM.

The university offers $11 000 for business and governance and nursing students and $8 000 “for all other eligible” courses, which includes all UG and PG coursework degrees and diplomas. Murdoch UG course fees are around $15 000 a year. The cuts are offered for four semesters, providing a significant savings for the first two years of study.

“There is no scholarship application process. An eligible student simply needs to accept their Murdoch University offer to be considered for an international welcome scholarship,” the university states.

WA is not doing well in the international market, with the state’s market share dropping from 11.2 per cent in 2002 to 6 per cent last year. Murdoch U had 1397 international EFTS in Perth last year, just 9 per cent of the total.
