5-star rating for Murdoch University Dubai

Murdoch University Dubai receives 5-star ranking and Student Satisfaction of 95.7%

The Murdoch University Dubai campus was recently awarded a 5-star ranking by local higher education regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), under their Higher Education Classification (HEC) system, which audits all Higher Education institutions in Dubai annually against an extensive range of criteria.

The HEC process was paused during COVID, however significant improvements across various categories in that time helped push the campus straight to 5-stars for the 2021-22 academic year, primarily student experience and student outcomes in progression and completion rates and improvements in the campus faculty research output.

Student satisfaction with learning and teaching was 92.4%, while the campus received a 91.9% satisfaction rating on its facilities, and 95.7% satisfaction with programs of study – all measured through student surveys initiated as part of the HEC process.

With over 90% for graduate employability rating (100% for Communications students!), Murdoch University Dubai’s last day of enrolment for the next intake is 16th September 2022.
