Professional experience in public policy

Professional experience in public policy

At Macquarie, learning doesn't just happen in the classroom. Through Macquarie's unique PACE program you can gain real-world experience in your degree and get ahead in the career queue.

Take your studies further and add practical experience to your degree by working with partner organisations locally, regionally or internationally through Macquarie University's PACE program. PACE students have the opportunity to work with industry mentors drawn from a range of sectors, including government, civil society and the private sector, on real-world research projects in policy development and reform.

"PACE is certainly a subject worth doing if you want to see the bigger picture; if you want to see how the law really affects people and how lawyers can bring about change for the better. We learnt so many practical skills that every lawyer should have."– PACE alumna Sandra worked with the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) for her PACE activity.

No matter what you decide to study at Macquarie, PACE has an opportunity available for you. Learn more about the opportunities available through PACE.
