Macquarie's spacious parkland campus is just 15 kilometers from the heart of Australia's largest, most cosmopolitan city. Located in Sydney's leafy northern suburbs, adjacent to Australia's largest high technology precinct, the university is set in beautifully landscaped, rolling green spaces, surrounding Australia's largest sculpture park.
Study abroad and exchange students are offered a well-rounded program which includes activities before and after the start of semester. Students are given a comprehensive orientation and can choose to participate in pre-orientation experiences like surf camps and Blue Mountain trips. There are also many clubs on campus catering to all interests to help all study abroad students meet their fellow students through various social activities.
