Do you know Michel Foucault?

Well being in MQU, it's a sure thing that you won't be lonely. It seems like every corner I turn it's someone to know or met in other modules. I think that is really important in uni, to have a good support group during your time of studies. University is really fun, there are a lot of events, social gatherings and yet the academic side of uni will mind boggle you and put you into internal conflict with your self self subjectivity.

Review from UC, Canberra

I do have a great time studying here. I made a lots of friends here who are from different countries. Teachers and other staffs in Uni are quite friendly. And there are lots of activities for students to join in. I really enjoyed the life after my study. You can always find somone who can provide helps to you such as academic help and career advice help. There is a huge event every year called Stone Week. I 'v been there twice and had a lot fun there.

Review of Macquarie University (Sydney)

Just right before I drive deep into my experience at Macquarie University (MQU), I thought I should touch a little on my background to form some parameters on my review and let you understand why this review revolve around certain contexts that are dear to me. A little background: I’m a late-bloomer and terrible in my A-Levels back in Singapore. After 3 years of unsuccessful application to Singapore Universities. I managed to save up some money by working for the military and with the support of my parents; I decided that I will go overseas to pursue my interest in business, specifically marketing. I chose MQU because I have relatives in Sydney and MQU had good reputation for its business offerings – Accounting and Actuarial Studies. The most important advice I can say from my selection process is to decide on WHAT your interest is. Passion is a big factor. Form there, you can work downwards on which universities offers the best courses and so forth. Having no experience in other Australian Universities, my advice would seem baised. On the whole, I find my MQU experience to be enjoyable and enriching.

Get involved

University life is definitely one of my most enjoyable experiences. At Macquarie University, the best advice I can give is to get involved! I do understand that majority of students do go overseas to get that HD grade, but there's more to student life than that! Get Active! At Macquarie we recently redevelop our gym, have two large swimming pools and have a wide array of sports to choose from. There are many sporting teams to join as well. Get fit and healthy! Meet friends! There are many student societies as well, depending on what you like, from dark ages club, manga/comics clubs, religious clubs, and even multicultural clubs. It is a great way to meet new friends and adapt to the Aussie culture.

Life in Macquarie

As a student trying to adapt to a foreign country, I am pretty much comfortable with the surroundings in Uni. Study wise, I have great lecturers. I made quite a number of friends. Financially, the cost of living is a little on the high side, but then again, as a student, as long as there is food and accommodation I am pretty satisfied.

Macquarie University Review

It has far exceeded my expectations. Australia and Macquarie University in particular has provided me with an excellent and balanced environment for both work and play, and compels you to work even harder to try to exceed your standards and expectations.
