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 to Murdoch becoming the place where new ways of thinking can be found. We won’t tell you what to think - instead we give you the support, skills and opportunities to free your Think and forge your own path.

Meet our Free Thinkers

Free thinkers ‘think for themselves’. They are curious and don’t accept the status quo. Instead, they look at things differently and most of all, aren’t afraid to step away from the crowd.
