Enrolments in Murdoch University's Singapore campus have grown by 330 per cent since 2009, making Murdoch one of the biggest foreign universities in the region.

Murdoch’s expansion has grown beyond Western Australia with its Transnational Education (TNE) enterprise in Singapore and Dubai generating over $15million in revenue. The University has been involved in TNE in Singapore since the late 1990s.

Murdoch’s pursuit of excellence in TNE will enable the University to take full advantage of the abundant opportunities that lie in one of the fastest growing regions of the world, and consolidate its position as one of Australia’s leading university in South East Asia.

“We are the second largest foreign university operating in Singapore by enrolment size,” said Associate Professor Peter Waring, Singapore Dean.

“The University has 5,500 students involved in TNE activities in Singapore, with an alumni base in excess of 9,000.”

Recent graduation ceremonies in Singapore marked the pinnacle in more than 1,000 student’s academic careers at Murdoch University, with close to 4,000 guests witnessing the record number of graduands receiving their degrees over the weekend.

Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Andrew Taggart journeyed to Singapore for the October ceremonies and was thrilled to see the significant rise in students graduating from the Murdoch campus.

“The University has worked hard to build greater engagement in Singapore and Dubai, and to deliver on the University’s commitment to provide an outstanding student learning experience,” said Professor Taggart.

“Since 2013, our Singapore campus has seen an increase of over 75 per cent in graduands, with a total of 1,718 students receiving their degrees this year alone.”

Murdoch University has a long and proud history of delivering high quality learning and teaching to meet the changing and diversified needs of its students and now has over 22,000 students enrolled across the globe.
