Annual Report

Introduction

Murdoch University was formally established in 1973 by an Act of the Western Australian Parliament to meet the growing needs of the community.

Named after prominent Australian author and philosopher Sir Walter Murdoch, and officially opened on the 100th anniversary of his birth, the University was the first in the nation to offer a new, flexible admission system. This made tertiary education more accessible to the community, a tradition that Murdoch University has upheld to this day.
