For Macquarie Matters and other alumni news

Macquarie continues to offer a range of benefits for alumni including free access for life to the Macquarie Library, discounts to MQ Sports membership, free MOOCs and iLearn classes and more.
New and refreshed benefits are planned for 2018 so stay connected.
For alumni benefits

The Macquarie alumni community is an amazing group of people – many who generously give their time and expertise to support other MQ alumni and students in a range of activities.
Macquarie alumni support their fellow alumni as Alumni Chapter and Network leaders, Galleries and Museum staff and Friends of MQ Health.
Macquarie alumni also support future alumni (current students) to develop their skills and networks for successful careers. Through MQ mentoring programs, the award-winning PACE program and even as MQ Graduations volunteers, alumni help and expertise is extraordinary and often transformative.
For more information on volunteering and to volunteer your time and skills at Macquarie, please contact the Alumni Relations Office

    Are the Alumni presentations i.e. Thought Leadership recorded?
    It can be difficult to attend these events.

      Hi Vanessa
      We will be filming each of the Sydney-based Thought Leadership and Backpack to Briefcase events with edited content shared to all alumni via social media links and the Alumni web (mq.edu.au/alumni). Events outside of Sydney will be on a case-by-case basis but please let us know if you would like these recorded – we will see what we can do.
      Hope this is helpful,
