Murdoch University’s flagship campus in Perth is one of the largest urban university campuses 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 the Fiona Stanley Hospital.

Murdoch is recognised as one of the most international universities in Australia, and ranks in the top one per cent of the most globalised universities, with strong student numbers across campuses in Singapore and Dubai. A new campus opened in Myanmar in 2018.
