Bachelor of Science

Macquarie University

The flexibility of the Bachelor of Science degree allows students to specialise in a particular area, at the same time including combinations of units in other sciences, some humanities or interdisciplinary areas. It also enables students to follow expanding modern fields, while gaining an appropriate knowledge of classical science. Some of the programs can be completed by distance education and some science units are offered in the evening.

Established in Sydney in 1964, Macquarie University is a progressive voice among universities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Created during a time of extraordinary social transformation to be a different kind of university, it was and will always be a bold experiment in higher education.

True to its founders' vision, the University has challenged the conventional thinking of academia through innovations in its campus set-up, curricula, interdisciplinary research, and engagement with industry and the wider community.

More than 40,000 students are enrolled annually across five faculties: Arts, Business and Economics, Medicine and Health Sciences, Human Sciences, and Science and Engineering.

Over the years, the campus has become a magnet for a constellation of companies - all local and global leaders in dynamic sectors including information technology and healthcare - which means greater access to career opportunities for its graduates.

The University is imbuing all of its undergraduate curricula with an emphasis on civic and professional participation. Its PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program takes students into working and social environments that enrich their experiences and connections, and open their minds to engaging as active world citizens.

The Macquarie University campus in North Ryde is connected to the Sydney CBD by fast and efficient transport - 20 minutes by car and 30 minutes by train.
