Undergraduate Merit List

From 2016 the Merit Scholars Program will become known as the Merit List. Please contact us on Ask MQ

Your place on the Merit List will be recognised on your official Macquarie University transcript for each year that you are eligible. 

Throughout the year your home Faculty will invite students on the Merit List to events and opportunities such as:

  • professional workshops
  • research programs
  • social and networking events.


An important change from 2017 is a change to eligibility for the Merit List. From 2017, entry to the Merit List is open to students who achieve a GPA of 4 after completing 18 Credit Points at Macquarie University (or equivalent at another Higher Education provider).

How do I join?

Students who are eligible for the Merit List will be contacted directly; there is no need to apply. There will be one round of invitations per calendar year. From 2017 Invited students will be eligible for the Merit List by retaining a GPA of 4.0 and above.
