Welcome to Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia.

Murdoch is where free thinkers from all over the world come together to make a difference. We currently have more than 22,000 students and 2,000 staff working together, exploring new ways of thinking and making discoveries. We're proud of our national reputation for excellence in teaching, research and student satisfaction.

Our students are enrolled in over 200 undergraduate degrees and postgraduate courses across a range of disciplines, including Veterinary Science, Law, Education, Psychology, Business, Security Terrorism and Counterterrorism and Nursing.

We take a flexible approach to learning, providing scholarships and a number of admission pathways, plus a range of internal and external study options to help our students fit study around their work and lifestyle commitments.

We're also 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.
