HEAR FROM OUR GLEP STUDENTS
I applied for the Global Leadership Entry Program because I saw it as an opportunity to continue my interests from high school.
Passionate about issues affecting the community, I was actively involved in Halogen Young Leaders Day, ‘Wellington Stands Alone’ movement and Lions Youth of the Year District Competition throughout high school. I was a positive role model for students by inspiring them to reach their potential as Vice-Captain of Dubbo College Senior Campus and coach of Wellington Warries Soccer team.
After completing the HSC, I volunteered for two weeks at my local primary school assisting students with literacy and numeracy. It was a rewarding experience and I could claim points under the Global Leadership Program. I have been impressed by Macquarie’s friendly and supportive environment. I have found the transition from living at home in a small country town to on campus life at Macquarie easy and enjoyable.
Nicholas Trappett – Bachelor of Arts (Media) with Bachelor of Laws
During my HSC year, I worried that the process of getting into university disregarded the individual and placed a large emphasis on a single mark.
GLEP took into consideration my extracurricular activities, allowing me to get into my dream degree. As a school leader, I created a Facebook coursework platform to assist year 10 students. As FIRST Robotics Captain I fostered positive discussions relating to women’s involvement in STEM roles. Through a Tribal Drumming group, I represented my community and built awareness of traditional West African music.
The best part about getting a GLEP offer was the relief it brought. I was accepted into the program before sitting my HSC, which meant that a massive weight of pressure was lifted.
Tanya Shukla - Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
I got into my dream degree through the Global Leadership Entry Program because of all the activities I completed in Year 11 and 12, not despite them.
At school, I founded a simple e-learning platform ‘Code with Me’ which teaches university students how to code and co-foundered Telenex - an app to assist in the diagnosis and on-going treatment of patients in Nepal. For the app, I received the Social Impact prize at UN Women Project Inspire. Additionally, as a founding member and Youth Ambassador for the ‘Hills Youth Army’ I helped raise over $40,000 for the homeless.
Regardless of what your passion is, Macquarie will have an avenue for you to pursue it further. Since starting this year, I’ve become a vice president for a society, and I’ve been nominated Science & Engineering Representative on the SRC. I’ve also continued building my start-up “Code With Me” through collaboration with the Pop-up Incubator Program and Entrepreneur Society.
