The MFU features regularly in local and national media, sometimes exploring what the MFU is all about, and other times sharing our speakers’ ideas with a wider audience.

Below you will find these two different types of media: interviews or articles about the MFU project, and interviews or articles that are drawn from lectures given at the MFU.
If you would like to interview someone from the MFU or someone who is scheduled to speak at the MFU, please contact us at melbournefreeuniversity[at]
MFU recordings can be used for private use and on any other website solely for the dissemination of knowledge for its own sake. Any commercial use of these recordings is strictly prohibited. If you would like to use the recordings, please mention the author and the MFU.
