Developed specifically to meet Macquarie University entry requirements, our programs help students transition to undergraduate studies by providing an alternate pathway to many of the University's Bachelor degrees.
Following Macquarie University's longstanding tradition of pioneering innovative academic processes and methods, the College operates across a seven-term academic year, with each term being seven weeks in duration. Our programs include an Intensive Program (2 terms), a Standard Foundation Program (4 terms) and a selection of Diploma Programs (4 terms). Student focus on two units (subjects) in each term of study.

Our courses are designed to ensure that students optimize their academic learning, maximize their opportunities for success, and seamlessly transition to their chosen undergraduate degree. Our role is to nurture generations of students, helping to develop their academic and English language skills, offering them the opportunity to undertake tertiary level education and forge a successful career.
