Macquarie is the university of pioneering minds. Globally recognised as one of Australia's leading research universities, Macquarie is a place where extraordinary new possibilities come to light. We've helped people to hear, introduced wireless internet technology to the world and broken through traditional boundaries by appointing Australia's first female vice-chancellor.

At Macquarie you'll join a vibrant community of diverse perspectives, all working towards a brighter future for our communities and our planet. Surrounded by beautiful parkland campus, our students and staff are free to explore and discover, supported by facilities including a high-tech library, private teaching hospital, gym and pools, childcare facilities, a campus train station and the newly expanded Macquarie Centre shopping complex next door. 

Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) is a University-wide initiative designed to provide undergraduate students with experiential learning opportunities with a range of local, regional, and international partners.  A key objective of the University’s Learning and Teaching Strategic Framework (2015) is to expand experiential learning programs to further enhance the employability of Macquarie graduates. One of the key strategies to achieve this objective will be to build on the PACE initiative through providing full internship opportunities and Co-operative Education (Co-op) across undergraduate programs.

Join us and start seeing the world in a different light.
