High achievers

The Macquarie University Merit List recognises undergraduate academic high achievers enrolled in an award program.  The Merit List is compiled each year.

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

Through the year, your faculty will advise you of opportunities open to high achieving students. These events are with your peers and colleagues within your faculty and we hope they provide you with a personalised way to embark on your academic journey.
