Macquarie University International College Programs

Macquarie University International College programs are taught in seven-week blocks called terms. Students study two units in each term, allowing more focused and therefore more effective learning.

If you are trying to decide whether a foundation or diploma program is right for you, academic advisers at the College can help. They will look at your qualifications and grades as well as your English language skills (if you are an International student), and discuss the best options with you or your nominated representative.

Diploma programs

If your English language and academic skills are close to those required for university entry, you may qualify for a diploma program. These programs are equivalent to the first year of a bachelor degree. If you are successful in your diploma studies, you can move straight into the second year of a bachelor degree at Macquarie.
