Murdoch continues to build on its proud tradition as an international, research-led university, providing an excellent learning and teaching experience for all students through a comprehensive range of degree and postgraduate programs.

Murdoch is ranked in the Times Higher Education Top 100 universities in the world under the age of 50. It was also awarded five stars for student-staff ratio in the 2016 Good Universities Guide.

With research expertise in multi and trans-disciplinary areas, Murdoch provides students with a holistic learning experience that engages with the social and scientific challenges of our time.

Murdoch has invested in contemporary learning facilities for both teaching and research, fostering a culture of research-led teaching and evidence-based practice that sees students tackling some of the world’s most pertinent problems including food security, biosecurity, infectious and lifestyle diseases.

The University’s flagship campus in Perth is a short train journey from the city and 15 minutes from Western Australia’s iconic beaches. More than two square kilometres in area, it’s the largest urban university campus in Australia and boasts a vast expanse of natural bushland teeming with unique wildlife.

The Perth campus is adjacent to a new urban centre known as the Murdoch Activity Centre, which includes one of the largest infrastructure projects undertaken in Western Australia - the new Fiona Stanley Hospital. This unique community precinct has created exciting partnerships with government and industry, particularly in the medical and scientific research fields.

Murdoch University also has an established campus in Mandurah, located in Perth’s fast growing southern corridor, home to Murdoch’s popular nursing degrees which are taught in state-of-the-art simulation suites. A third campus in suburban Rockingham operates Murdoch’s successful pathways and enabling programs, giving students from a variety of backgrounds the opportunity to access a tertiary education through alternative entry streams.

Murdoch is a truly international University with more than 40 per cent of its students located in the fast-growing international campuses of Singapore and Dubai.
