As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Macquarie University was founded in 1964. Equipped to assist its students for success in today’s fast-changing, highly competitive global society, the focus at Macquarie University is on the student. The aim is to provide the student with a flexible academic program that suits their needs. For our Study Abroad and Exchange students they have developed a comprehensive semester program, which combines a quality Australian academic experience with an extensive social and cultural program.
Macquarie's spacious parkland campus is just 35 minutes from the heart of Australia's largest, most cosmopolitan city. Located in Sydney's leafy northern suburbs, adjacent to Australia's largest high technology precinct, the university is set in beautifully landscaped, rolling parklands, surrounding Australia's largest sculpture park.
Please note that this site observes the Southern Hemisphere academic calendar. If you want to study for a full-year in the southern hemisphere, consider starting your program at the beginning of their academic year in February or March. Some institutions offer annual rather than semester courses. For southern hemisphere programs, ISEP benefits do apply during the recess between semesters (June - July), whereas they do not apply between the end of one academic year and the beginning of a new academic year (December to February/March).

Students are housed in fully furnished, self-catered apartments near campus. Rooms are available on a single or shared basis. Macquarie International may assist students with spouses and families with housing; however, please contact the Study Abroad Office for further information. This program does not include meals.
Study abroad and exchange students are offered a well-rounded program which includes activities before-and-after the start of the semester. Students are given a comprehensive orientation and can choose to participate in pre-orientation trips like Surf camps. There are also many clubs on campus catering to all interests including Club Ex which was created by students who have participated in ISEP Exchange, to help all study abroad students meet their fellow students through various social excursions.
