At Macquarie, we have discovered
the human equation for success.
By knocking down the walls
between departments, and uniting
the powerhouses of research and
industry, human collaboration can
flourish. This is the exponential
power of our collective, where
potential is multiplied by a campus
and curriculum designed to foster
collaboration for the benefit of
everyone. Because we believe when
we all work together, we multiply our
ability to achieve remarkable things.

That’s YOU to the power of us

“My placement with Johnson & Johnson gave
 me great insight into the medical devices
 industry and the important role healthcare
 clinicians play behind the scenes. I attended
 multiple theatre cases with clinical specialists

“When faced with a problem,
 a group of people with a
 homogeneous way of thinking
 might come up with a solution
very quickly. But when the group
 consists of people from different
 countries, genders, faiths and
 backgrounds, the result will be
 a powerful solution where every
 iteration has been discussed –
 thus making it possible to find the
 best result. This is the true value
 of diversity.”

 be quite daunting. Your mentor will guide you
 through any challenging experiences, create a fun
 learning environment and motivate you to be the

   GETTING TO AND FROM CAMPUS
   Macquarie's campus is located just 15 kilometres from Sydney's city centre. Once you have arrived, you will discover that Sydney's public
   transport system is safe, efficient and easy to use. Macquarie University even has its own train station, with a new Metro Line. There will
   be a train leaving every 4 minutes in peak times and no timetable will be needed - you can just turn up and go. The train line connects to
   Chatswood Station, and from there you can changeover to the city stations (Wynyard, Town Hall and Central). Bus routes also connect
   the campus to popular Sydney destinations including world-famous Bondi Beach, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Town Hall.

 It's our mission at Macquarie to prepare our students for the future
– whatever it's going to look like. With experts predicting that by
 2025, around 50 percent of jobs as we know them today won't exist,
 it's vital that when you graduate from Macquarie, you have a skillset
 that allows you to reinvent yourself in any industry.
To prepare you for the future, we have created a course structure
that allows you to graduate sooner and complete a Master degree in
as little as 1 year.
Depending on your prior qualifications, work experience, or other
recognised prior learning, you may be eligible for a 1-year admission
point. The 1-year admission point only requires you to complete the
Core Zone units, covering the specific disciplinary or professional
