Established in 1964, Macquarie University began as a bold experiment in higher education. Built to break from traditions: to be distinctive, progressive, and to be transformational. Today its pioneering history continues to be a source of inspiration as it celebrates its place among the best and brightest minds.
Recognised internationally, Macquarie University is consistently ranked in the top two per cent of universities in the world and within the top 10 in Australia.
The University's research is leading the way in ground-breaking discoveries. Its academics are at the forefront of innovation and, as accomplished researchers, it is embracing the opportunity to tackle the big issues of our time.
Led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor S Bruce Dowton, Macquarie is home to five faculties. The fifth and newest - Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences - was formed in 2014. They are also home to some of Australia's most exceptional facilities - hubs of innovation that unite its students, researchers, academics and partners to achieve extraordinary things.
There are two main ways you can apply to Macquarie: via the Universities Admissions Centre or directly to the University itself. The course you wish to study will determine the method of application.
