Pitching business ideas to entrepreneurs, recording a radio ad in the studio or writing a story for the Newsroom – learning at Macleay College is as hands-on and practical as you can get.

From guest lecturers to industry visits, students are always taught with an industry first perspective. This makes the transition from student to employee easier and faster.

By mixing traditional theory learning with practical skills, students are taught the latest industry approved courses in a relevant, hands on way. See some of our latest student work on AdBare and the Newsroom.

With class sizes of 25 or fewer, every Macleay College student is given personal attention, support and the maximum opportunities to reach their goals both personally and academically.

We have only 400 students across our Sydney and Melbourne campus per year, which means staff and students are all on first-name basis.

This highly personal learning means you get hands-on, personalised learning tailored for you. Everyone from the lecturers to the support team are here for your success and can work with your education needs.

Our students cannot graduate without completing an internship – it’s as simple as that. We help students find internship positions, train them for job interviews and advise in preparing their CVs so they’re job-ready and experienced once they graduate.

Internships are a vital part of your education experience at Macleay as they demonstrate everything you have learned in the classroom in a real world environment. Work experience through an internship provides you with experience in your field, networking opportunities and the chance to get a head start in your industry.

Our teachers are all working professionals in the fields they are teaching. Think of a Macleay lecturer as more of a mentor looking to help the next generation. That means they teach from a professional perspective and can give you the best, most current and most relevant insights into the industry you are studying.

Like any industry there is a huge variety of backgrounds and experience amongst our lecturers. Our lecturers have worked in multiple industries around the world so our students have access to their latest industry knowledge and contacts so that they are job-ready when they graduate.

No matter what you’re studying, classes are held over 3 set days each week. This leaves students at least 2 spare days to study or work. A healthy work/learn balance is an important part of life at Macleay and this timetable is one of the ways we achieve it!

We understand it can be difficult to juggle different schedules and times so we purposely design the timetable to ensure you have plenty of time for life outside of studying. For even more flexibility, students also have the option to study part-time and take evening classes (subject to class sizes).

If you have a passion for Advertising & Media, Business or Journalism, we want you. That’s why no ATAR is required to enrol in a Diploma course at Macleay College just as long as you have completed the HSC, VCE or state equivalent. If you are a non-school leaver, with relevant professional work experience, you will also be considered.

If you are jumping into a Bachelor’s Degree an ATAR of 65 is required to enrol. This is just to make sure you have the required academic skills to fly through the course. If you don’t have an ATAR of 65 you can always enrol into a Diploma and look at articulating into the degree.
