A single ID for accessing buildings, borrowing books, using printers and copiers and more.
Begin your learning journey by setting up and exploring the range of systems Macquarie has to offer.
All Macquarie’s systems and online resources require you to use your Student ID (the 8-digit number in your offer letter) and password. To set this up for the first time, follow these steps:
Below are the main systems you’ll use at Macquarie for your admin, learning and support.
eStudent is where you can update your personal information, enrol in and choose your units, register for classes, pay your fees, and view your exam results. You need to keep your contact details up to date in eStudent (under ‘My Details’) and if you’re an international student, make sure you add your new Australian address and contact number.
University announcements and important information related to your studies will be sent to your MQ student email account.
Your student email address is based on your name – eg email@example.com (sometimes this will include a number after your last name). Make sure you check it regularly and you can also forward emails from your student email address to your personal email account using this step by step guide.
iLearn is your online learning space where you’ll find your subject specific materials and resources. You'll also receive important updates via the announcements module (such as your online class links), complete assessments via Turnitin, and connect with classmates in the discussion forums.
You'll check iLearn daily during your studies so get to know this system well!
Macquarie University uses Zoom to create online virtual classrooms or meeting spaces. You have free access as a Macquarie student to Zoom and you can watch our video to understand how to use Zoom for your learning.
Before a scheduled zoom class, your lecturer or tutor will share the link for your class via iLearn or your student email. To join the class, simply click on the link at the scheduled time and login using your Student ID and password.
Macquarie has a few dedicated support systems you'll need to use, depending on what you need help with.
