Written by Rachel on January 2nd, 2013

It’s surreal to know that just a year ago, I had my ATAR and was stuck for choices for university. I was just another nervous and shy high school graduate and was overawed by the buzz and activity of Open Day.

Written by Andrew on September 24th, 2012

Gather round, today I’m going to tell you about the time I was at the London International Model United Nations conference (LIMUN). After reading carefully though Macquarie’s generous travel grant scheme, I realised that Macquarie sponsors students to attend international conferences. Since I was already flying to Europe for exchange as part of my Bachelor of Information Technology with the Bachelor of Laws, I thought I might as well take the opportunity to attend an international conference, and if Macquarie wanted to support me, well so be it.
