Important Updates

We are excited about the announcement made by the Australian Prime Minister on the 22nd of November 2021 that fully vaccinated international students will be able to travel to Australia from the 1st of December 2021 without the need to apply for a travel exemption or undergo hotel quarantine.

Macquarie University has taken the decision not to reopen the Study Abroad and Exchange program face-to-face for Session 1 2022 (February - June 2022) as there are still too many uncertainties and a very short turnaround time! However, we are receiving applications for Session 2, 2022 and look forward to hosting you on campus then!

Please refer to the following websites for the Australian Government’s official travel advice and guidance:
