COVID-19 Impact Points

COVID-19 Impact Points

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the educational environment across Australia.

Macquarie recognises the significant impact this has had on people and the considerable anxiety and stress related to university entry for 2022.

To reassure Year 12 students and non-school applicants of Macquarie’s commitment to supporting access to higher education and studying at Macquarie Uni, all applicants (applying for a Session 1, 2022 undergraduate degree or Term 1 or 2 undergraduate certificate, diploma or foundation program, 2022) will automatically receive five COVID-19 Impact Points.

Prospective students will not have to apply for these additional adjustment factors as they will be automatically applied via their Universities Admission Centre (UAC) application.

These additional adjustment factors can be used for admission to all courses except our Actuarial degrees (and double degree combinations) and Co-op programs.

Combine adjustment factors

The maximum amount of adjustment factors a student can receive is 15 points combined across eight schemes. Please note that not all schemes apply to all courses. Please view the maximum amount of adjustment factors you can receive for each course below:
