Study Options in Physics
Students studying Physics normally enrol as full time internal students, attending lectures and laboratory sessions on campus during 'normal' working hours.
However, you can study Physics part time, for about 10 to 20 hours per week. Most of the degree programme may be completed off-campus (via correspondence and on-line) without any on campus attendance. Studying as an off-campus student may take you longer to complete your degree, but removing timetable restrictions increases your choice of units to study.
A special feature of studying at Murdoch is the flexibility allowed in planning your degree. Many students combine studies from various areas in order to increase their general knowledge and skills base. Many programmes can also be effectively combined as a full double major.
Almost any area may be combined with the Physics programme. Particularly appropriate combinations are with: Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Education, Chemistry, Nanoscience, Mineral Science and Environmental Science and many other arts and science programmes.
Employers look for people who are broadly educated, as well as competent in specific areas. Studying in two or more disciplines increases your career prospects, while extending your general level of education and allowing you to pursue more than one interest.
Through exchange agreements with universities throughout the world, Murdoch offers its students the possibility of completing a semester of study abroad. Details on Study Abroad opportunities can be obtained from the International Office on +618 9360 6368.
