Uniquely located in the heart of Australia’s largest high-tech precinct, Macquarie brings together 40,000 students in one exciting hub of discovery. Our Sydney campus spans 126 hectares, with open green spaces that give our students the freedom to think and grow.

Over AU$1 billion has recently been invested in our facilities and infrastructure so our students can thrive in learning environments that are inspiring and switched on to the latest digital technologies.

For international students, our campus is the perfect home away from home. It boasts extensive accommodation options, numerous food and retail outlets, on-campus medical services, a Sport and Aquatic Centre and one of Sydney’s largest shopping complexes situated just next door. And with active student groups representing the globe from Africa to Vietnam, there’s always a friendly welcome.


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 overseas.

Our graduates work for some of the most sought after brands that include PwC, Johnson & Johnson, Citigroup, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Singapore Airlines.
