At Macquarie University, there are lots of societies that you have the opportunity to get involved in! Joining societies and being an active member is an excellent way to make the most of your university experience and make friends. Below are some of the best societies that Macquarie University has to offer.


MULS is a must-join society for any law student at Macquarie University. Getting involved in the society will set you back a few dollars to start with, but then you'll soon notice the benefits in the form of discounted tickets and early access to tickets for events.These events include the annual Law Camp and Law Ball, which are not to be missed! They also run competitions such as negotiations and client interviews, which can help to boost your resume and build your skills.

Similarly to MULS, MUPS is the Macquarie University Psychology Society. Basically, if you're a psychology student, this society is a must. They run similar annual events to MULS, such as the Psychology Ball. They also run small events and get-togethers that can help you to build connections and make friends who are also studying psychology and have similar interests to you.
