Depending on the student’s prior academic qualifications, work experience or other recognised prior learning, they might be eligible for a one-year admission point into their chosen master degrees, enabling them to fast track their studies and save time and money. Students can also choose to complete two master degrees in as little as two years from a selection of popular double masters on offer.

Students could also choose to complete a Master of Research or a PhD at Macquarie in their areas of interest. The university also offers a wide range of pathway, English, executive traning, study tour and study abroad programmes.
