If you’re considering studying at university next year, you’re probably feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the choices available to you. There are so many unis out there and so many degrees to choose from.
So, before you make that all-important decision, ask yourself what’s fundamental to you about university and the degree you’re keen to study.
Do you want to study a degree that’s as unique as you are?
Studying a degree that can be personalised to match your unique interests and your career ambitions may sound like a unicorn, but it’s not at Macquarie University.
Macquarie offers more than 40 single bachelor degrees and countless double bachelor degrees. Because of their innovative curriculum, you’ll have lots of scope to choose units from outside your degree. This means you’ll gain the skills you’ll need for your career, but you can also follow your passions in diverse areas.
If you’re considering a double degree, you might be interested to know that while all universities offer double degrees, Macquarie allows you to personalise your double degree by choosing the combination you consider will best kickstart your career.
Will practical experience be part of the journey?
Employers are looking for more than just discipline knowledge — they want graduates who have had a range of practical experiences.
Macquarie’s degrees offer in-built internships and other practical experiences that will provide you with the kind of employability skills that will help you stand out from your peers.
Is having a great time just as important as kicking your learning goals?
The connections and memories made at university can pay a lifetime of dividends, so student life is one of the most important parts of any university journey.
As well as exceptional learning and teaching facilities — and contemporary study spaces — that ensure you’ll receive the best possible education, Macquarie offers fabulous food outlets, a buzzing bar, exciting events and awesome sporting facilities.
Is the uni easy for you to get to?
Uni life is busy enough, so you’ll want to make things easier by choosing a centrally located campus with great public transport connections and nearby amenities. Macquarie just happens to be in the economic powerhouse of Macquarie Park, is opposite Macquarie Shopping Centre, and has its own metro station.
Will you get help to find a job once you’ve finished studying?
You also want to think about life after university — when you’re ready to start your career. A lot of unis provide degrees but no career support after you graduate. Through Macquarie Student Employment — a student recruitment service that’s unique among Australian universities — you’ll be matched with local industry partners who want to employ students and graduates in paid casual, part-time and full-time roles. Plus, you can access this service for up to a year after you graduate.
Still have more questions?
The best thing to do is speak to an expert. Macquarie University will be hosting its annual Explore Your Options from 12–17 December 2023.
You can book a 1:1 consultation to have all of your questions answered, and get personalised advice about your uni options and pathways to Macquarie.
Plus, you can join a campus tour to discover Macquarie’s amazing facilities and stunning grounds for yourself, and score a free giveaway just for attending.
Once you register, you’ll also get access to more than 70 recorded info sessions from the Macquarie Open Day to listen to at your own pace.
