ARC Grant

In the November 2018 Australian Research Council (ARC) grants round, Macquarie University was awarded over AUD 14 million, which is used on over 38 multi-disciplinary projects on varied subjects such as planetary evolution, lateralisation of brains, history of Australian businesswomen and lots more.

A total of over AUD 380 million was declared by The Hon Dan Tehan MP (the Minister for Education) through the ARC, as a part of the Government’s funds for Macquarie University research projects.

Emphasising on the importance that Macquarie University devotes to research, Professor Sakkie Pretorius, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) said the ARC grants were recognition not only of Macquarie’s past exceptional research performance but of Macquarie’s potential across a diverse set of research projects.

“The result demonstrates the rich research environment at the university that encourages our academics to greatness across a range of fields. Successful grant applications take an extraordinary amount of time and dedication and the outstanding result is testament to the research quality produced by Macquarie academics,” he added.

AASCB Accreditation

The university’s Faculty of Business and Economics has been merited with the distinguished AACSB International accreditation. The AASCB was established in 1916 and is the oldest-serving accreditation body worldwide for business schools.

“AACSB Accreditation recognises institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International.

Study options

Study options

International students in Macquarie University have an extensive range of interdisciplinary degrees to choose from. The university offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees across subjects including business, engineering & IT, health & medical sciences, environment, law & security, media, history, languages, art, science and education. The degrees are crafted with an emphasis on employability and industrial knowledge.

There are two ways in which Macquarie’s undergraduate courses are designed. On one hand, students taking up certain courses must complete the units in a particular sequence in order to graduate. On the other hand, there are other courses, which provide students a broad range of majors to choose from, in their fields of study.

However, students of postgraduate level benefit from more flexibility, as they can customise the coursework and research programmes to incorporate modules that don’t relate to their primary focus field.

Besides undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, Macquarie University also offers its students options such as study abroad programmes, research programmes and internships. With so many options, Macquarie University’s focus is to cater to the needs of all its students.

Entry requirements

For those countries without a GPA system, the list also includes the minimum pass standard that is required.
