STUDENT LIFE AT MACLEAY
At Macleay College there is always something happening on campus, from guest speakers, to industry visits and student events.
We want students to make the most of their time at Macleay College. In between classes students can study in the library, use the Mac and PC labs or take a break in the student zone and play a game of ping pong.
All study and no play is not the way at Macleay. Instead, classes are held over 3 set days per week. This gives students more time to study, work and complete internships. So no matter what there will always be time to study, work and play.
Juggling study and work means that most students don’t operate on a strictly 9am – 5pm schedule. That’s why our on campus facilities are available late into the night so that night owls can study at their own time.
Macleay College is centrally located so you can get in and out easily and grab a good cup of coffee in an instant! From Sydney in Surry Hills to Melbourne on Swanston Street, there are plenty of cafés, bars and pubs for students to have a thriving social life.
“I want my fellow students to be in an environment where they can enjoy their education. A student lifestyle can be rigorous at times but my aim as president is to give those at Macleay a comfortable learning environment where they can strive to succeed.”
Anthony Johnston, SRC President
If you have a question, our Student Services team will have the answer! Timetables, student concession tickets, camera equipment hire or even handing out a spare pen when it’s been forgotten, our dedicated Student Services team provide day to day support to our students no matter how large or small the task.
Students can access Student Service on campus Monday – Friday 8am until 6pm. There is also an IT Support Help Desk for those technical questions that need to be answered from home or at College.
It can’t be all work and no play! From pizza and movie nights, BBQs, table tennis competitions, coffee carts, donuts and pancake days – there’s always something happening on campus.
A dedicated Student Representative Council (SRC) organises on and off site events as well as providing support to new students and feedback to senior faculty on behalf of the student body.
Every year a new SRC is elected by popular student vote and attend regular meetings to discuss student concerns, activities and how best to engage all students.
However you’re feeling, we are here to help. A qualified counsellor is available for students in our Sydney and Melbourne campus every week. Students and staff can book a private and confidential meeting free of charge with our College counsellor for those in need of some extra personal and emotional support.
Students can also attend free workshops on study tips, referencing, essay writing, search and research and report writing, which are held regularly throughout the Trimester.
