Academic Information

  • COURSE SELECTION
    The courses listed below are only a sampling of what the university offers. Please see the full Macquarie Course Catalog, linked below, for additional courses.
  • CREDIT CONVERSION
    Per Macquarie University's recommendation, 3 credit points = 3-4 U.S. semester credits (4-6 U.S. quarter credits). The transcript from Macquarie will reflect Macquarie credit points for each course. Please be in touch with your U.S. university regarding credit transfer for this program.
  • COURSE LOAD
    Please note this program is 3 courses, which is considered full time status at Macquarie UNniversity; however, your U.S. university will determine whether this meets full time student status as your U.S. university defines it.
  • COURSE LEVEL RECOMMENDATIONS
    ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the Macquarie University unit (course) codes. All MU unit codes consist of three or four letters detailing the subject area of the unit (such as GEO for geosciences) and three numbers. Units with numbers beginning from 1 to 3 are undergraduate units. A code beginning with 1 represents first level studies, 2 second level and 3 third level. Units classified as level 2 and level 3 are recommended as upper division. These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.

Housing

Living in ISA Sydney housing will give you the opportunity to interact and engage with local Australian and International Students alike and experience aspects of the Australian lifestyle that are often overlooked by visitors. All ISA Housing options are within walking distance to your university or are conveniently located close to public transit routes. While there are differences between accommodation in Australia and the U.S., with an open mind and a drive for exploration, you’ll soon discover that the experience of living in another culture can be both educational and rewarding.

Housing is provided on all ISA programs in Australia at an additional cost.  Apartment accommodation at Macquarie University starts at $6,000 without meals (Subject to Change).

Apartment Without Meals

Students studying on-campus at Macquarie University will be placed in fully-furnished, single rooms within a 4 - 5 person on-campus apartment.

The accommodation is also conveniently located near the Macquarie train station for easy access to the city. Each room has a private, en-suite bathroom, a wardrobe, a desk and ample study space. Students will be living with other host university students. Meals and laundry service are not included, but a coin operated laundry room is available to all residents.

Independent Housing

Students may opt to secure housing independent of the ISA program. By choosing to opt out of ISA housing, you are solely responsible for researching, reserving, and paying for all fees, deposits, and rent directly to your independent housing agency. Please be sure to confirm that you have Home University approval to pursue Independent Housing during your ISA Program.
