We challenge every student to explore and develop a global outlook, by providing a superior, connected learning environment, enhanced internship opportunities, and greater exposure to future job markets. And with a strong tradition of pioneering thinking, ingenuity and exploration, we continue to break new ground as we work to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues to build a positive future for all.
Transferring to Macquarie is a streamlined process
Macquarie University welcomes transfer students from two or three year colleges in North America. We assess the courses you have taken at college and match it to your Macquarie degree. Students need a GPA above 2.5 out of 4 and to have completed a minimum one year of study at college.

Macquarie University has done extensive course mapping to make the process as streamlined as possible for you.
