Murdoch University Essay Structure

Year 12 students who are preparing for their WACE exams can get some extra help with their studies for free at Murdoch University’s Rockingham Campus on July 12 and 13.

The days, which each begin at 8.30am and finish at 4.15pm, will see attendees get revision help in key subjects including English and Mathematics as well as exam tips, essay-writing help and career and university course advice from Murdoch academics.

The sessions are completely free, with morning tea and lunch provided, but students will need to register to attend as soon as possible.

Professor Andrew Taggart, Pro Vice Chancellor for Murdoch’s Rockingham Campus, said the aim of the study days was to help Year 12 students in the area achieve the best possible results.

“We hope to see many of these students back at Murdoch as first years, so we will do all we can to help,” he said.

“At this important time in their lives, it is vital for them to understand the many different entry pathways to the various Murdoch courses.

“Completing the WACE Preparation Days on our campus and with our academics will also give them an important taste of university life. We hope we can help them to achieve their dreams of a university place.”

Students can attend seminars in English, Mathematics, Physical Education, Human Biology, Chemistry, History and study skills. The seminars will be led by outstanding high school teachers with Murdoch academics attending the beginning of sessions to tell students where their hard work could lead them, and answer questions about courses at Murdoch.

The university’s WACE Project Manager Natasha Brook and WACE officers Milica Robinson and Laura Bailey have been working with all Rockingham and Mandurah high schools to encourage a good turn out.

The WACE Preparation Days which had been due to take place at Murdoch's Peel Campus on July 9 and 10, have been cancelled due to low student registrations. The students that had registered for these will be notified and can instead come to the Rockingham Campus on July 12 and 13. Murdoch University will put on a bus service for all attendees in the Mandurah area. The bus pick-up and drop-off points will be Pinjarra Senior High School, Halls Head Community College, John Tonkin College and Mandurah Baptist College but extra bus services will be provided if required to ensure that students are still able to attend.

For more information and to register, email Ms Brook.
