Murdoch People

We all have a story to tell. From where we’ve come from, to where we want to go, each Murdoch story is unique.   

Since opening our doors in 1974, Murdoch has grown from a local Western Australian university to a global community representing over 90 countries. We were the first Australian university to introduce a flexible admission system, and today our ethos of welcoming and supporting people, irrespective of background, continues.

We celebrate our differences because it’s one of our strengths. Without our people, our campuses would just be buildings. And without our diverse community, comprising people from all walks of life, we wouldn’t be exposed to and benefit from so many different ways of thinking. After all, it’s through exploring new and different ways of thinking, that better ways of doing can be found.
