About Macquarie University

Established in 1964, Macquarie University began as a bold experiment in higher education. Built to break from traditions: to be distinctive, progressive, and to be transformational. 

Recognised internationally, Macquarie University is consistently ranked in the top two per cent of universities in the world and within the top 10 in Australia.

Uniquely located in the heart of Australia’s largest high-tech precinct, Macquarie brings together more than 40,000 students and 3000 staff in one thriving hub of discovery. The campus spans 126 hectares, with open green space that gives the community the freedom to think and grow.

About the Linguistics Exchange Program

Macquarie Linguistics has special strengths in: 

  • Hearing and Speech Sciences
  • Language Acquisition

Over 20 courses have been pre-approved for transfer credit.  See the complete list here.
