If you complete your higher degree research at Macquarie, you will be rewarded with an exceptional research training experience in an environment of the highest quality.
Macquarie’s commitment to world-leading research with world-changing impact has been recognised in the results we achieved under the Australian Government’s most recent Excellence in Research for Australia evaluation. Results from the 2015 evaluation highlighted Macquarie’s impressive research profile, with 100 per cent of our research ranked as ‘performing at world standard’ or higher.
Our considerable research expertise is focused on the priorities: Healthy People, Resilient Societies, Prosperous Economies, Secure Planet and Innovative Technologies. These priorities are buttressed by four research objectives: to accelerate world-leading research performance, to prepare world-ready higher degree research candidates, to engage as a world-recognised collaborator of choice and to deliver research with world-changing impact. We attract candidates of the highest potential who we provide with outstanding supervision, outstanding mentoring and an outstanding placement within one of our areas of research strength.
Macquarie aims to provide opportunities for career-enhancing exposure to industry, government and communities, and to ensure that our degrees are internationally aligned and globally relevant. We do this through our outstanding facilities and supportive programs.
Macquarie’s commitment to international research excellence is exemplified by our research training program. Our Master of Research is fully aligned with research training in Asia, Europe and North America. We were the first university in Australia to align internationally and you can rely on Macquarie to ensure you have greater international recognition for your qualifications. At Macquarie, we value our body of higher degree research candidates as a key asset of the University, and we recognise the vital contribution our research candidates make to the University, to the nation and to the world.
