Begin your university journey in Rockingham

Our Rockingham campus opened in 1996 to support the south coastal communities in university education. Since 2015, our Rockingham campus has centred around our range of entry programs. These include OnTrack, OnTrack Sprint, TLC110: Learning for Tomorrow and Murdoch’s Aspirations and Pathways for University (MAP4U) program.

OnTrack Sprint

Our OnTrack Sprint program is an intensive four-week program. It’s designed to help you improve your problem solving, research and writing skills for study at university.

You can use OnTrack Sprint as an entry pathway to study at Murdoch University if you’ve completed your WACE certificate within the previous 18 months, have an ATAR between 60 and 69.5 or have an ATAR over 70 but have not quite achieved English language competence.
