Macquarie is renowned for its interdisciplinary research and teaching, highly skilled graduates and first-class facilities.
A five-star university
Macquarie was awarded five stars in the international QS Stars rating system for its performance in:
- graduate employability
- specialist subjects
We are one of only 5 Australian universities to receive 5 stars in all categories.
The rating, attained only by truly world-class institutions, reinforces our academic, research and international standing.
Macquarie achieved the maximum 5 rating — outstanding performance well above world standard — in three science disciplines in the recent Australian Government Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation, and 85 per cent of the University’s research activity was rated as performing at world standard or higher.
Recent investments of over $1billion in infrastructure have allowed us to offer students and researchers the best technology and facilities, such as:
- Australia’s most technologically advanced private hospital on a university campus
- Australian Hearing Hub
- global headquarters of Cochlear Ltd
- a state-of-the-art library featuring a robotic book storage and retrieval system
- a swimming and sports complex
- an on-campus railway station
Practical experience that improves graduate outcomes
A key part of Macquarie’s unique learning environment is PACE, an initiative that provides opportunities for students to apply what they are learning within their degree in real-life organisations and environments. Such experiences help Macquarie students develop communication, leadership, professional, and interpersonal skills, which greatly improves their career prospects.
