Multicultural learning and global leadership teaching in a Sydney suburb

Its spacious and lush campus hosts 39,000 students, over 7-9,000 of whom are international.

Located in suburban Sydney, within commuting distance of the Central Business District, Macquarie enjoys particular renown in subject areas like engineering, environment, law and media & communications. Courses in accounting and finance are also popular and are strengthened by the presence of the Graduate Accounting and Finance Centre and offers an AACSB accredited Business School. Its faculty of human sciences has strong linguistics and psychology departments, and also provides study abroad students with the opportunity to enroll in early childhood studies.

What I value most is my introduction to the Aboriginal culture. It brought an awareness to my attention of cultural differences. ”
