Career appointments

The end of term is fast approaching but there is still time to meet with a Careers Advisor.  Currently we’re helping students with resumes, cover letters and interview techniques for part time summer jobs, holiday work experience positions and gap year inquiries.  If you need some assistance pop in or email the Careers Office. Students from all year groups are welcome.

Macquarie Entry Navigator

Everyone comes to university on an ATAR, right? No, not with Macquarie Entry.

ATAR is just one of the indicators we use to determine your suitability for study. It’s true that your ATAR rank can be a useful indicator of your chances for success in a specific course. But it’s equally true that for other courses there are other indicators we can use to assess your suitability. 

Use the navigator to see which entry pathway suits you best.
