A feature of a Macquarie education is world-class interdisciplinary degrees developed with graduate outcomes in mind, combined with real-world learning. Upon graduation, our students can expect an excellent employment rate and high starting salary – CEOs around the world rank Macquarie in the top 5 Australian universities for their graduate recruitment.

Why Macquarie University?
Macquarie University is number one in Australia and number 14 worldwide among universities under 50 years of age (QS ‘Top 50 Under 50’, 2012).

Our global focus opens doors

A green home in the heart of Sydney’s high-tech precinct
Macquarie’s 126 hectare parkland campus is located in one of the southern hemisphere’s largest business and technology commercial districts. This provides our academics with outstanding research and innovation opportunities with some of the world’s leading organisations including CSIRO, Cochlear, EMC, GlaxoSmithKline, Honeywell and Optus. It also means we are highly integrated with industry, which provides our students with a superior learning environment, enhanced internship opportunities, and greater exposure to the job market prior to graduation.

Macquarie received an outstanding report card from the Australian Government’s ‘Excellence in Research for Australia’ initiative in 2011. Five of our science disciplines scored a maximum 5 out of 5 rating, indicating performance well above world standard. In total 80% of Macquarie’s research activity was rated as performing at world standard or higher.

Its MBA was ranked among Australasia’s top five by The Economist in 2010 and MGSM is consistently ranked in the top 5 in the world for student quality.

First-class facilities
Macquarie’s strategy to become one of the country’s leading research universities is supported by investments of more than $1 billion in facilities and infrastructure that attract and retain highquality students and researchers, such as the Macquarie University Hospital and the Australian Hearing Hub.

“Thank you ELC, you made a big impact on my life!”
Studying at ELC has stretched my capacity to learn new things about the academic culture at an Australian University. After completing just 4 weeks of my English course, I absorbed so much about essay writing skills, presentations, references and also researching data on library databases. Now I am studying my Masters in Management at MGSM, and I am using all my skills learnt at ELC which has helped me to achieve great results and cope well with study loads.

I really enjoyed my time in Macquarie University English Language Centre! Teachers were really nice and enthusiastic. They genuinely do their best to teach us, and I appreciate that. Most importantly, my class was wellorganised and interesting! Since I was in English-Chinese interpreting course, I have learned so many things that only could be taught effectively. There were fun activities as well. My friends and I knitted a blanket for people in need around the world. I strongly recommend the ELC to other students! Its friendly atmosphere and teachers will help you improve your language skills. As I really enjoyed my time here, I’m sure you can enjoy it too!

Students Under 18
Students under the age of 18 can be accepted with package offers with SIBT or upon meeting set criteria. For these students, we provide special support because, under Australian law, all people under the age of 18 are considered to be minors. We want our younger students to be safe and happy in their accommodation, and to make good progress with their English language study, so we provide regular group meetings with an advisor to discuss any problems. Students under 18 must live with parents or a legal guardian while they are in Australia. Our approved Homestay Agencies can arrange guardianship and accommodation. This involves living in the home of an Australian family.

Our student body comes from over 30 countries. This diversity makes us a culturally interesting and inspiring place to study. Within the Australian environment, students have the chance to make friendships that may last a lifetime with classmates from around the world. Students get the most out of their experience in Australia by learning English in a variety of situations. Many opportunities are provided for you to be involved in a range of social and cultural experiences and student activities.

What is a placement test?
Macquarie University agents can administer the placement test for students who would prefer not to sit a more formal examination of English proficiency (such as IELTS, TOEFL, or Pearson). The test takes approximately 1 hour. It is then sent to the ELC where a teacher assesses the number of weeks of English the student requires before they should be able to meet the English proficiency requirements of Macquarie University.

Who can help me if I have a problem with my course?
ELC has a qualified and experienced academic advisor and counsellor who is available to help students if personal or welfare difficulties arise. Advice on academic matters concerning study at ELC or future study plans is also available. Teachers and administration staff are available as much as possible to help students with problems or any issues that may arise. Our friendly and welcoming staff will do their best to make the students’ time at the ELC enjoyable.

When can I start to study? What are the course dates?
Our courses begin every 5 weeks. Please refer to our online course dates. Please note that different countries have limitations or regulations as to the number of weeks of English students are able to study. Students should refer to the relevant Australian agency in their country.

What is a package offer?
A package offer is an offer to study English and the chosen degree program with Macquarie University (MQ) or SIBT. If a student has decided on their future study plans at MQ or SIBT they can simply apply directly to Macquarie International or SIBT with evidence of their English level. The number of weeks of English required will be assessed and a start date for an English program to coincide with university session dates is suggested. With a package offer a student will have the benefit of having a reserved place in their course at Macquarie University or SIBT.

Firstly apply to study at the English Language Centre using our online application form. An offer will then be emailed. After accepting the offer and payment of fees, the student will get a CoE. This can be taken to the relevant Australian authority to apply for a student visa.

What is an English only offer?
If a student would like to study English only, or do not yet know their future study plans, they can apply directly to ELC. Evidence of their English level can be provided before they arrive or they can do a placement test on Orientation Day. Apply online.

I have a tourist/working holiday visa, do I need a CoE and how many weeks can I study?
CoE is not required for students studying while on a tourist visa or working holiday visa. However there are limitations to the number of weeks they are able to study depending on their nationality. If students plan to study for more weeks than their visa allows they will need to apply to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for a student visa at

What is a conditional offer?
A student has been offered a place at MQ but has not yet met the English requirements of entry to the course. English proficiency can be shown in two ways, either by doing an IELTS test or by studying at ELC and passing a University Entry English Preparation Program (UEEPP). The number of weeks of study required will be determined based on the evidence of English language level provided. Students may sit an ELC Placement Test through a selected agent in order to assess the number of weeks of English study they should undertake to meet the University’s English proficiency requirements.
