Introduction: beach
Murdoch University was established in 1973 as Western Australia’s second research university. It was named after Sir Walter Murdoch, a prominent Australian academic and essayist. Set on a beautifully landscaped campus, Murdoch University is located approximately twenty minutes by car from Perth’s city center and ten minutes from the port of Fremantle. Perth is a lovely city of close to one million people and is famous as a seaside city where the sun always shines. The peaceful bushland setting makes Murdoch one of the most beautiful universities in Australia.

With a current enrollment of more than 18,000 at three campuses, including the Singapore and Dubai campuses, Murdoch is a moderately sized university with a vibrant and cosmopolitan campus life. Murdoch University is committed to the pursuit of excellence and has achieved an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research.

The University is divided into four academic divisions and offers a wide range of subject matters that could attract exchange students from a variety of majors. The academic divisions are science and technology, social sciences and humanities, business and law, and veterinary and biological sciences. The university takes great pride in its mission “to extend knowledge, stimulate learning, and promote understanding, for the benefit of the community.”

Room and Board:
Murdoch’s on-campus housing is the Murdoch University Village which has single and double rooms and apartments with one or two bedrooms. There are organized activities for students. Unfortunately, this facility is not guaranteed for exchange students; therefore, students applying to Murdoch must be prepared to look for off-campus housing on their own or with a rental agent.
