Alumni benefits

There are many benefits to staying in touch with Macquarie.

Alumni continue to enjoy borrowing privileges at the University library, as well as access to more than 10,000 online resources including professionally relevant and general interest sources.

If you’re interested in further study, alumni receive a 20 percent enrolment discount for over 15 Executive Education courses at MGSM, and free access to Macquarie’s Open 2 Study online courses including Climate Change, Financial Literacy and Becoming Human: Anthropology.

You are also invited to attend a range of professional and personal development lectures and discussions as well as reunion and social events – in Sydney, interstate and around the world.

If you want to keep healthy, alumni receive discounted consultation at the new state-of-the-art Speech and Hearing Clinic facility as well as special membership prices at Macquarie’s Sports and Aquatic Centre, which has just announced some exciting new additions.

They include an outdoor fitness zone, with rings, boxing bags, lifting platforms and battling ropes that lets you get back to basics on our while getting your daily dose of Vitamin D.

A dedicated training zone just for women in the Health Club offers a range of brand new equipment that gives women the space to enjoy their workout and train with other women.

Express workouts are short, sharp, intense and effective group training sessions that run for 30 minutes and are free as part of your membership. Check out the Express Workout Timetable.

So while you may not attend classes on campus anymore, our Sport and Aquatic Centre now gives you even more reasons to return to Macquarie on a regular basis!

    Apart from “more than 10,000 online resources including professionally relevant and general interest sources”, is any of this relevant to people who don’t live in Sydney?

    To whom it may concern.

    I keep receiving the alumni newsletter from Macquarie. I can read that “alumni continue to enjoy borrowing privileges at the University library”. I wish to actually do it, but I am not sure how since I live in Europe. Would it be possible for me to access online Journals?

    Many thanks,

    Staying in touch with a permanent place in the world is reassuring in every way. Now at an age when people stop listening, we are reassured that we have already had the benefit of an academic world where our opinions were accepted and equal with all. Although no loner active on campus we still have a voice and can stay in touch with the ‘thinker’s’ platforms; Fresh new ideas are the thing most needed in our fast changing world. I am privileged to be invited to contemplate it all, and continue to benefit all these long years later.

      I think it is great the University offers these opportunities to former students. Inevitably those of us living out of state do miss out on some of this but that’s life. I will certainly look at the free online courses. They sound wonderful. Thank you

      Hi Fiona,

      Macquarie alumni do have benefits to access the Sport & Aquatic Centre. Please contact 9850 7310 and we can help you with this.
