The Master of Clinical Audiology at Macquarie University is dedicated to preparing students to become professional audiologists. Macquarie University's audiology program provides supervised clinical placements to hone its students' professional skills. As well, numerous modules of scientific coursework allow students to learn the scientific fundamentals of audiology and understand the processes that contribute to congenital or acquired hearing loss and vestibular dysfunctions.

This audiology program enables individuals who have completed a bachelor's degree without specification to any field to qualify as audiologists in two years and obtain a master's degree. The Master of Clinical Audiology at Macquarie University adheres to the Professional Standards of Practice outlined by the Audiological Society of Australia and students are allowed to apply for membership with the organization upon graduation.

Macquarie's Master of Clinical Audiology program also features access to an audiology clinic within the Linguistics Department that conducts diagnostic audiology tests at the university, as well as strong departmental associations with audiology professionals in developing countries such as China and the Philippines.
