From our beginnings in Perth in 1976 to a university with five campuses globally.
Murdoch ranks among Australia’s best
We’re proud to be recognised among the top universities in the Australia and Asia Pacific region.
From our beginnings as a free-thinking university to the global centre for learning, teaching, research and industry we are today, we have never lost sight of our purpose.
With more than 23,000 students and 1,700 staff from across 90 different countries, we are proud to be recognised for the impact that our free-thinking graduates, life-changing research, and innovative campus and industry developments have made – both in Western Australia and around the world.
The only education out of which good can come is the education which teaches you to think for yourself, instead of swallowing whatever the fashion of the moment may prescribe.Sir Walter Murdoch, 1926
