- Bachelor of Cybersecurity can be taken as a double degree with commerce, criminology or psychological science. Our new Diploma of Information Technology can be used as a pathway option to cybersecurity
- Bachelor of Information Technology students at the Melbourne campus can now choose from six majors aligned to future industry growth in either: software engineering, cloud analytics, artificial intelligence, network engineering, information systems or data science. Our online version of the course offers greater flexibility including software engineering and cloud analytics as available majors. Students can opt to graduate sooner with a Diploma of Information Technology or Associate Degree in Information Technology
- Bachelor of Science students can choose from up to 17 majors (depending on the campus), including new offers such as climate change, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. There also options to graduate sooner with our Diploma of Science and our Associate Degree in Science.

LEADERS AND ACHIEVERS EARLY ENTRY SCHEME REOPENS
At Macquarie, we recognise the anxiety and uncertainty experienced by Year 12 students at this time. With the delaying of HSC exams and ATAR release, their ability to plan for university is also impacted.
An early offer can give students peace of mind and certainty about their future at university. Following the latest announcements for Year 12 students by the government, we have reopened applications for our Macquarie Leaders and Achievers Early Entry Scheme.
This important change will help support students concerned about their university placement, and we hope goes some way towards addressing the pressure, anxiety, and stress that all Year 12s must be feeling with the changing circumstances.
The Scheme is now open and applications will close Sunday 19 September.
We are also encouraging students to apply for admission to Macquarie via the Schools Recommendations Scheme (SRS). This Scheme also closes on Sunday 19 September.
Our Contact Centre is open 9am – 5pm, Mon-Fri to help with any enquiries students, teachers or parents may have. Ph: (02) 9850 6767 or email@example.com.
We also have Year 12 Personal Consultations available 3.30pm – 7pm, Tues-Thurs where students can speak to an expert adviser about their university options.
Book a consultation here.
5 COVID Adjustment Points for Year 12 students applying to the University of Newcastle
2021 has again proven to be a challenging time for year 12 students and we continue to look for ways to provide additional reassurance and support for your students.
We are pleased to announce that we will be providing all school leaver students with 5 adjustment points for all programs (excluding the Joint Medical Program).
These additional adjustment points are in recognition of the extraordinary challenges year 12 students have faced since the start of last year. We would love to see these extra points providing encouragement for students to continue to strive for their best results in the HSC.
The 5 adjustment points will automatically be applied by UAC and there is no need for any additional application. Students are eligible for a maximum of 12 adjustment points.
We also wanted to let you know that despite the delay in ATARs, we will still be providing students with a pathway to receive an offer prior to Christmas. Our Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) offers will be released from November Round 1. This is an important pathway for our school leaver cohort. Nearly 50% of our commencing school leaver applicants came in through the SRS last year, so we would encourage as many of your students to apply before the September 19 deadline (see here for more details).
We are very excited to share this with you and continue to provide support and reassurance for your students. If you would like further information, please reach out to your Future Students team contact.
