Murdoch University didn't become a free-thinking university overnight. Since being founded in 1973, it has been committed to providing students with the kind of education which enables them to change their worlds, think for themselves, and find new ways to push past the status quo.
Murdoch is a place where students can be themselves and be appreciated for who they truly are. It is the kind of place where the lecturers know them by name, and other down-to-earth students' wave from across the lawns of Bush Court. Murdoch are honoured to welcome and staff and students who come from all walks of life.
Located in Perth, Western Australia, the heartland campus features more than 227 hectares of beautiful native bushland, specialised education and recreational facilities and a range of essential support services.
From its inception, Murdoch has been a research-led university with a reputation for world class research. By working often with key corporate, academic and government partners, to ensure research is underpinned by a deep understanding of politics, governance, and international affairs. This helps translate outcomes into impact.
Whether you want to change the whole world, some of the world, or just your world, Murdoch's extensive range of courses and hands-on learning facilities will equip you with the skills you need. Taking you beyond the classroom and out into the field where you can think for yourself and see the world in real time. A great education is not just about information in textbooks. It's about feeling, seeing, and experiencing the world with your own hands. This is free thinking in action.
We don't follow the crowd, and neither do our students. Thousands of free-thinking students have graduated from Murdoch and made their mark on the world. When you're thinking for yourself, there's no limit to what you might achieve.
Free thinking has always been at Murdoch's core and continues to steer the university towards activities that truly matter. Murdoch are different, and they're proud of it.
