Macquarie University Australia

Macquarie University is on track to becoming one of Australia’s leading research universities. To reach our goal we are investing heavily in research, learning and teaching, new buildings, new teaching facilities and in developing mutually beneficial relationships with industry. Macquarie is home to some of the world’s most pre – eminent researchers many of whom are members of our 18 Concentrations of Research Excellence.

These concentrations cover a diverse range of fields from Ancient History to Climate Change. Alongside this research effort, we are rejuvenating our learning and teaching, updating our curriculum and providing opportunities for students and staff to contribute to society.

The name to be chosen for Sydney’s third metropolitan university came down to two different schools of thought – those who wanted to commemorate a great Australian figure in education, and those who preferred a geographical name. In 1964, Federal Cabinet chose in favour of naming the university after a prominent Australian. In the end, Governor Lachlan Macquarie was chosen ahead of suggestions which included WC Wentworth and Sir Henry Parkes.
