About Murdoch University
Murdoch University is the place where free-thinkers come to succeed.
At Murdoch University in Perth, Australia, we're proud to have more than 22,000 students and 2,000 staff from across 90 different countries with a desire to discover, use their imaginations and ultimately make a difference.
We embrace free thinking and encourage our Murdoch community to share ideas, pool knowledge and find new ways of thinking. Across Australia, we're recognised for excellent teaching, ground-breaking research and our high number of satisfied students.
At Murdoch we have more than 22,000 students and over 2,000 staff, including 2,000 overseas students from around 100 countries studying in Perth and another 8000 studying offshore. That’s more than 25,100 unique stories, backgrounds and ways of thinking that help us to make a difference in the world.
In Western Australia, our South Street campus has a range of facilities including a comprehensive vet hospital (with WA’s only equine operating theatres), engineering pilot plant, a chiropractic clinic, Media Arts centre and more. We also have campuses in Singapore, opposite the National Library in the education hub, and in Dubai where our students use state-of-the-art TV and radio studios, newsrooms and editing suites.
We’re recognised as one of Australia’s leading research institutions, as more industries place their belief and resources into our projects to provide our research candidates and scientists with the opportunity to make amazing discoveries.
Murdoch views the opportunity for its students to take part in some form of work-related experience as an essential form of learning integral to each of our courses. The University’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Program seeks to provide an important learning experience for students, while allowing them to demonstrate their graduate skills to employers.
Murdoch's main campus is 15km south of Perth and, at 227 hectares, is the biggest of any Australian university. We also have campuses in Rockingham and the Mandurah region.
