In Australia, recent bushfires, flooding, and the response to the COVID-19 pandemic have identified gaps in healthcare infrastructure, especially for sensitive populations such as persons with several sclerosis (MS).

However, these individuals may have psychological and physical damage, and medical needs greater than the general population. The Crisis Healthcare Management Scholarship aims to develop an understanding of the healthcare needs of the MS community during times of crisis.

Murdoch University is a public university in Perth, Western Australia, with campuses also in Singapore and Dubai. It started operations as the state’s second university on 25 July 1973 and accepted its first undergraduate students in 1975.

The university’s name is taken from Sir Walter Murdoch (1874–1970), the Founding Professor of English and former Chancellor of the University of Western Australia. Murdoch University is a flourishing university and a member of the Innovative Research Universities.

In 2018, Murdoch University was recognized as producing the most employable graduates of all Australian universities after 3 years of graduating from their courses. In 2019, the university rated third in overall student satisfaction amongst all public universities in Western Australia.

In 1962, the Government of Western Australia earmarked an area of land in Bull Creek to be the site of a future, second, state university. Majorly to the planning of the creation of Western Australia’s second university was the planning for the School of Veterinary Science, which was to be the first professional faculty of the new university.

Murdoch University was decided that the new university would be named after Sir Walter Murdoch who is an important local author, philosopher, and Emeritus Professor at the University of Western Australia.

In addition, Murdoch University was formally constituted on 25 July 1973. The university was opened with an inauguration ceremony on 17 September 1974. Lectures started in 1975, with 510 students initially enrolled for undergraduate programs.

Since 2015, the University has become more teaching-focused. In late 2018, the university faced scandal after an enrolment rush of international students, many said to be lacking English language and computing skills.

In 2019, a Four Corners investigation by the ABC found further worsening of standards with allegations of foreign students being recruited as cash cows. In May 2021, Murdoch University unveiled a new brand, replacing the traditional banksia logo with a simplified MU logo intended to be modern and future-focused, as well as signifying the university’s dedication to being a progressive, free-thinking university.

Furthermore, the 2021 Times Higher Education World University Rankings has listed Murdoch University in the top 501-600 universities in the world, slipping down from 401-500 in previous years, placing the lowest of the four Western Australian universities.
