With a student population of over 15,000 including 3,000 international students Murdoch is a dynamic, modern university with a national reputation for excellence in teaching, research and student satisfaction. We are committed to excellence in teaching and research and Murdoch provides the ideal place to take the next step on the lifelong path of learning.
Education at Murdoch is about creating opportunities for your future. We have a flexible admissions policy that provides alternative entry paths for students from non-traditional academic backgrounds. We also have an adaptable undergraduate degree structure, so you can broaden your qualifications [and your choice of careers] by taking a double – or even a triple - major.
Importantly we provide an education that encourages you to think independently and critically and that is designed to foster those qualities of imagination and independence of mind on which professional and personal development depend.
