Overall Rating :

Macquarie University began as a bold experiment in higher education – to be distinctive, progressive and transformational. Today, still as bold as ever, Macquarie is a vibrant hub of intellectual thinkers, all working towards a brighter future for our communities and our planet.
Macquarie is uniquely located in the heart of Australia’s largest high-tech precinct, a thriving locale that is predicted to double in size in the next 20 years to become the fourth largest CBD in Australia. Our campus spans 126 hectares, with open green space that gives our community the freedom to think and grow. We are home to world-class facilities, including Australia’s only university-led integrated health campus. We also have excellent transport links to the city and suburbs, supported by an on-campus train station.
While only 50 years young, Macquarie has risen to be a progressive and influential institution both locally and internationally. We are ranked among the top two per cent of universities in the world, and with a 5-star QS rating, we are renowned for producing graduates that are among the most sought-after professionals in the world.
Our enviable research efforts – 100 per cent of our research is ranked at world standard or above and more than 30 of our researchers are ranked in the top one per cent of researchers in the world – are brought to life by renowned researchers whose audacious solutions to issues of global significance are benefiting the world we live in.
Macquarie has a strong record of innovation. We helped develop the technology that underpins modern wifi systems, we lead the world in environmental science and the impacts of a changing climate on society and industry, and we pioneered online treatments for mental health conditions. As we look to the future, we are constantly seeking new solutions to the challenges the world faces.
Our pioneering approach to teaching and learning is built around a connected learning community: our students are considered partners and co-creators in their learning experience. Their face-to-face experience is paired with sophisticated and interactive digital resources, and their courses are linked to the latest research discoveries. This approach is helping our students to become audacious and responsible leaders in their field and active members of their communities.
