Description OnTrack Sprint provides an entry pathway into Murdoch University for students who have completed their WACE certificate within the previous 18 months, generated an ATAR between 60-69.5 and are Australian citizens, permanent residents or humanitarian visa holders. Through this intensive, four-week preparatory program students will learn to think critically and complete research at a University level. By participating in tutorials and completing assignments you will open your mind to new ways of thinking and develop skills as independent learners.
Admission Requirements: Onshore course offerings OnTrack Sprint is an Enabling Program which:
* is offered for the purpose of enabling a non-overseas student to undertake an award program in a student place which is funded either partially or fully by the Commonwealth at the institution or at another institution;
* meets Commonwealth guidelines concerning the inclusion in the annual data collection of student load for Enabling Programs;
* is specifically designed to meet the needs of students who have completed a WACE certificate within the previous 18 months and have generated an ATAR that is close to, but does not quite meet, the eligibility criteria for direct entry. Specifically they will have generated either an overall ATAR of 60-69.5 or an overall ATAR of 70+ but failed to meet Murdoch University's English competence criteria.
