Units are normally run Seminar style therefore classes do not exceed 50 per class.

What does BYOD mean?

The City Campus is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment. You are encouraged to bring your personally owned devices (laptops, tablets, etc.) to the City Campus and to use these devices to access information and study on location. 

There are also units that you may be required to complete that require the use of your own device. Students studying ACST603 will be required to bring a device capable of running the software required in the unit as stated in the Unit Guide. 

Macquarie University also takes no responsibility for any lost or stolen personal devices or property.
