Flexible start dates
We offer a high level of flexibility with three sessions

Our library is course-specific and provides copies of all required texts. You can borrow books, utilise computer facilities, study in allocated quiet areas and seek assistance from librarians. You can also borrow books from Macquarie’s North Ryde campus and the University’s access online resources.
Orientation and enrolment
At orientation you will be given your timetable, student identification card, receive important information on safety and security, and go on a campus tour. A team of current students will assist you during orientation. This gives you a great opportunity to ask questions about Macquarie City Campus or living in Sydney
