Why choose Murdoch?

We provide what you would expect from a world-class university, including leading academics, world-changing research, excellent facilities and a wide range of courses. But it’s our ethos that sets us apart and has led Murdoch to becoming a place where free thinking thrives. We give you the support, skills and opportunities to think for yourself and forge your own path – this is free thinking.

Meet our Free Thinkers

At Murdoch, our students learn to harness free thinking to look at things differently to explore, innovate, create and evolve. They change what is into what can be. Because, the only way to push the world forward is to push what we know.
