Uniquely located in the heart of Australia's largest high-tech precinct, Macquarie brings together 40,000 students and 2000 staff in one thriving hub of discovery. Our campus spans 126 hectares, with open green space that gives our community the freedom to think and grow.

From our beginnings, we have defied the traditional boundaries of academia. Instead, we have pioneered – and continue to pioneer – learning and teaching approaches that challenge conventions and shift thinking.

Our pioneering approach is built around a connected learning community, and 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 courses are linked to the latest research discoveries. They are connected with industry partners through internships and work placements.

Macquarie University is on track to becoming one of Australia's leading research universities. To reach our goal, we are investing heavily in research, learning and teaching, new buildings, new teaching facilities, and in developing mutually beneficial relationships with industry.

We design many of our degrees in collaboration with industry, and many are also accredited by peak professional bodies, giving our students a head start on their careers. Additionally, we offer our students a package of career accelerator initiatives that educate, enable, and empower them to launch a career in whatever field ignites their passion. More than AU$1 billion has recently been invested in our facilities and infrastructure so our students and staff can thrive in an environment that is inspiring and switched on to the latest digital technologies.

Macquarie is home to some of the world's most pre-eminent researchers, many of whom are members of our 18 Concentrations of Research Excellence. These concentrations cover a diverse range of fields, from Ancient History to Climate Change. Alongside this research effort, we are rejuvenating our learning and teaching, updating our curriculum, and providing opportunities for students and staff to contribute to society.

Macquarie University was founded in 1964 as a radical and unconventional addition to the New South Wales tertiary education market. Fifty years on, Macquarie University is still different. Macquarie is proudly a university of service and engagement - engaging students and staff through transformative learning and life experiences and serving the world through discovery, dissemination of knowledge and ideas, innovation, and deep partnerships.

In the heart of Australia's largest high-technology precinct, our unique location provides benefits for staff and students through an environment of outstanding research and innovation, and learning and teaching opportunities with world-leading organizations. We aspire to be:

  • A destination of choice for students and staff who share our values.
  • Deeply connected with our stakeholders and partners, and known for this globally.
  • Ranked among the highest performing research universities of Australia and, for critical disciplines, to be recognized globally for our pre-eminence.
  • Known across Australia and beyond as custodians of a remarkable university campus that blends the vibrancy of a cosmopolitan university village with a setting of Australian natural bushland.
