Murdoch University Postgraduate Student Association (MUPSA) is led by postgrads, for postgrads, so we understand your needs, rights and professional and academic goals.

MUPSA is a representative body for all postgrads within The Murdoch University Guild of Students. We’re here to help postgrads with all aspects of study and candidature, including the opportunities and challenges of research or coursework, or simply with connecting you with other postgrads through our social events.

We provide bursaries, hold academic, professional and social events such as employability workshops and other events with focus on research. In addition to all this, we advocate on behalf of our members – that includes you – so that you can get a positive postgrad experience during your time at Murdoch.

MUPSA believes that a vibrant postgrad community involves a strong and active postgrad student association. We assist our members to achieve better results, increase their chances of finishing their degrees and experience less delays to completing their courses.

MUPSA is only as strong as its members are active. Yes, that means, YOU!


Are you an External Postgrad Student at Murdoch University?

If yes, then you are an important member of our student community, and MUPSA Committee welcomes you to get in touch with us. MUPSA has a private facebook group only for external postgrads to share personal and study-related queries or just chat. If you live in the Great Southern Area of WA, there is also a Great Southern Postgraduate Group.
