About Murdoch University

Murdoch University is a research-intensive institution and a member of Innovative Research Universities Australia (IRU Australia).

The university has dropped in international university league tables, notably the ‘World’s Top 100 universities under 50’, having entered at 57th in 2013 and dropped to 68th position in 2017. However, the 2018 Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) identified that Murdoch University graduates had the highest employability level of all Australian universities after three years of graduating, at 96.7%.

In the most recent 2019 Student Experience Survey, Murdoch University received an overall student satisfaction rating of 79.8 and a teaching quality rating of 82.3, comparable to most other universities in Western Australia, as well as receiving the second-highest rating for student support of all public universities in Western Australia.
