Recent highlights at Macquarie University

Macquarie University Hospital and Australian School of
Advanced Medicine
Due to open in 2010, the Macquarie University Hospital and associated
Australian School of Advanced Medicine (ASAM), will complement
teaching and learning at Macquarie University. As the first campus-based
university hospital in Australia, it will combine excellence in clinical care,
medical education and research. Macquarie University, through ASAM,
has also formed a new medical alliance with GE Healthcare to tackle brain
diseases, including arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Read more about
ASAM on page 21.



Cochlear global headquarters and Hearing Hub
Cochlear Limited, a global leader in implantable hearing solutions,
will move to Macquarie University in 2010 and establish new research
collaboration initiatives. The Cochlear global headquarters will be
the only integrated research, manufacturing and distribution facility
in Australia. It will provide a platform to extend existing Macquarie
University postgraduate research and teaching in audiology, cognitive
and language studies.
The Macquarie University Hearing Hub is also under development and
will see Australia’s leading organisations bring their dedication to the
hearing impaired into one central location at Macquarie University.




Building Y3A
The Faculty of Arts has now relocated two of its flagship departments;
Media, Music and Cultural Studies and the Centre for Policing,
Intelligence and Counter Terrorism, as well as the majority of its Higher
Degree Research candidates into the newly renovated and custom-
designed Y3A building, (formerly the Australian Film, Television and
Radio School).
The multi-million dollar renovation and relocation offers dedicated
spaces for postgraduate study and research and state-of-the-art media
and recording facilities to all students and staff interested in screen
production, radio broadcasting, film production, dance, contemporary
music, international communications and multimedia.



Library
Scheduled to open in 2010, our new library will enrich your time on
campus by providing a central library space combined with learning,
research and social spaces. You will have access to a wide range of
specialised research collections, general study materials, and online
journals and newspaper articles. Built over five levels, key features of the
library will include a 24-hour learning lounge, quiet study areas, meeting
rooms, Australia’s first automated document storage and retrieval system
(which incorporates the use of robots) and a café.
Designed for environmental sustainability, the new library is on track to
receive the Green Building Council of Australia’s 5-star rating.

                                Concentrations of Research Excellence (COREs)


Macquarie’s international reputation rests on distinct research
areas of the highest quality. Currently, there are 18 COREs:
Ancient Cultures                                                               Research in Ancient Cultures includes fieldwork for many students.
The breadth of coverage and the integration of source studies with
historical research makes Ancient Cultures at Macquarie University
unique. Our projects advance each of our key areas – excavation (Egypt),
inscriptions, numismatics, prosopography (Rome), papyrology (Early
Christianity), and editing and translation (Late Antiquity and Silk Road).

Animal Behaviour
Our research combines insights from sensory, physiological and cognitive
processes with genetic and comparative analyses. The goal of this uniquely
integrative approach is to understand animal behaviour at all levels, from
mechanism to evolution.

Astronomy and Astrophysics
Macquarie University is a highly active centre of astronomical research
excellence and is in close proximity to both the Anglo-Australian
Observatory and the Australia Telescope National Facility. Our research
strengths include wide-field astronomy, optical, infrared and radio studies
of planetary nebulae and supernova remnants, stellar proper motions,
theoretical studies of shock-waves, star formation and black holes.

Biomolecular Frontiers
We undertake world-class research in proteomics, glycomics, genomics,
biotechnology and chemical biology related to cell biology, human disease
biomarker discovery, agri-food quality trait discovery, microbial physiology
and pathogenicity, gene transfer systems, protein post-translational
modifications and expression, and bioinformatics. The Biomolecular
Frontiers team is underpinned by the state-of-the-art research
infrastructure provided by the Australian Proteome Analysis Facility.

Climate Risk
We are a multi-disciplinary group with expertise in climatology, water,
coastal processes, geomorphology, ecology, economics, law and
governance, social policy, planning and risk analysis. Our strategy is to
use science and impact assessment infused by and packaged within a
framework of economic, financial and legal risk.

Cognitive Science
We study basic processes of cognition – language acquisition, reading
and spelling, understanding and producing spoken language, face
recognition, thinking, memory and attention – using our results
to achieve greater understanding of cognitive disorders such as
schizophrenia, autism, dyslexia, aphasia, specific language impairment in
children and prosopagnosia.

       DISCLAIMER
       The fees quoted in this brochure are estimated yearly fees payable for the relevant postgraduate program in 2010. The University reviews fees each year and may increase them in the following year. Information
       on estimated yearly fees payable is available before enrolment. Students are subject to other fees, charges and conditions for each semester in which they enrol and are advised to check the current fees, charges
       and conditions with the University before enrolling at any time. See www.international.mq.edu.au/fee_policy. The University, its agents, contractors and employees will not be liable to a student for any loss or
       damage arising directly or indirectly from the student’s failure to make these checks or from the University’s amendment to any fee, charge or condition. The University has the right to vary programs including their
       content, structure, entry requirements (including score conversions) and graduation requirements from time to time.
       Programs with limited places (a quota)
       An academic program may have limited places for the number of students to be accepted. The quota may be reached and the program full prior to the application deadline. Therefore applicants are encouraged
       to apply as far in advance of the application deadline and to accept their offer as soon as possible before the deadline set in the offer letter. If a program is full when your application is processed or your acceptance
       received, the University will transfer your application to be considered for the next available intake.

       to apply as far in advance of the application deadline and to accept their offer as soon as possible before the deadline set in the offer letter. If a program is full when your application is processed or your acceptance
       received, the University will transfer your application to be considered for the next available intake.

       on estimated yearly fees payable is available before enrolment. Students are subject to other fees, charges and conditions for each semester in which they enrol and are advised to check the current fees, charges
       and conditions with the University before enrolling at any time. See www.international.mq.edu.au/fee_policy. The University, its agents, contractors and employees will not be liable to a student for any loss or

       to apply as far in advance of the application deadline and to accept their offer as soon as possible before the deadline set in the offer letter. If a program is full when your application is processed or your acceptance
       received, the University will transfer your application to be considered for the next available intake.

Location

Macquarie University’s North Ryde campus is uniquely located
in parklands only 30 minutes drive to Sydney Harbour.
In 2009, we became the first university in Australia to have its own train station on campus.
Bus services have also been developed, meaning it is now much easier to get to Macquarie
University from all parts of the city than ever before.
