What’s unique about Macquarie?

Study Abroad program

The best way to truly immerse yourself in global issues is to experience them first-hand. Our student exchange program is one of the best in Australia, allowing you to study abroad for two weeks, a whole session or even a year. The cost of international exchange has also never been more affordable with our Mobility Scholarship Scheme.

PACE (Professional and Community Engagement)

Macquarie’s PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program is a unique opportunity to gain practical real-world experience within your chosen degree. Through strategic placement with one of our many local and international partner organisations, you can learn invaluable work and life skills that set you apart from other graduates.

Global Leadership Program (GLP)

Stand up for global issues and stand out from the pack with Macquarie’s Global Leadership Program, an extracurricular program to be taken alongside any course at Macquarie. Past GLP students have attended global peace workshops in Turkey, visited the United Nations Human Rights Council, trekked across India and volunteered in Africa.
