“Imagine yourself suddenly escaping
 everything you know and setting down
 with a few personal possessions in a new
 room, with new people, in a new country.
Then imagine this space becoming full of
 memories and life-changing experiences.
This was the transition I experienced being
 on exchange at Macquarie University. It
 is a place of adventure, friendship and
 unmatched passion.”

   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 Metro station. In peak times, a train leaves
   every 4 minutes so you don’t need a timetable – you can just turn up and go. The Metro line connects to Chatswood Station and from
   there you can change to a train bound for the city stations (Wynyard, Town Hall and Central). Bus routes also connect the campus to
   popular Sydney destinations including the world-famous Bondi Beach, the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Town Hall.

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.
