The Graduate School of the Environment (GSE) is within the Division of Environmental and Life Sciences at Macquarie University. It is the largest environmental school in Australia and was formally established in 1978.

What Makes us Special

We aim to assist students to develop skills to deal with environmental challenges and to seek integrative solutions to them. We recognize that sustainable solutions involve scientific, economic and social factors.  Our interdisciplinary program provides students with the skills to analyse, intelligently discuss and address environmental issues with economists, lawyers, managers, scientists, politicians and the community at large - indeed all categories of stakeholders involved in environmental issues.

Sydney is Australia’s most famous city for good reasons – from the sparkling harbour and city beaches to the cosmopolitan city centre, Sydney has something for everyone. If you’re a city-person, you’ll be enchanted by the charm of Sydney – take all the best aspects of the big cities around the world, add Australian hospitality and friendliness, and a big dash of great weather, and you’ve got Sydney.
