High achievers

High achievers

High achievers are recognised through The Merit Scholars Program, which became known as the Merit List as of 2016.

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

Each Faculty invites students on the Merit List to events and opportunities throughout the year, including:

  • professional workshops
  • research programs
  • social and networking events


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.
