With world-leading facilities, industry connections, flexible curriculum, and an award-winning internship program, graduates get the real-world experience they need to get ahead.

Where collaboration meets innovation
Uniquely located in the heart of Sydney, Australia’s largest high-tech precinct, Macquarie brings together more than 45,000 students including 10,000 international students and 3000 staff in one thriving hub of discovery. Our campus spans 126 hectares, with open green space that gives our community the freedom to think and grow. We have recently invested more than one billion dollars in our facilities and infrastructure so our students and staff can thrive on a campus that is dynamic, sustainable and built for collaboration.

Macquarie has one of the most generous scholarship programs in Australia, providing many opportunities each year to international students to undertake studies along with the option for both domestic and international students to study short-term or on a semester long exchange at one of our many global university partners.

With over 300 leading companies located on or around the Macquarie campus, our students are able to tap into industry connections that give them an edge in their future careers. With degrees designed in consultation with industry and a focus on practical, ‘real world’ learning, our students graduate with the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

Macquarie graduates stand out from the crowd through their participation in programs like Participation and Community Engagement (PACE) and the Global Leadership Program, both of which offer students the chance to build develop practical professional and leadership skills in work and community environments both within Australia and around the globe.  Students from over 120 countries are warmly welcomed into the Macquarie community and benefit from special ongoing academic, language and wellbeing support throughout their study.
