Accelerate your entry into the Bachelor of Philosophy/Master of Research program

You may already be aware that Macquarie now offers the Bachelor of Philosophy/Master of Research program, but did you know that you may be able to enter into Year 2 by applying to have advanced study in your chosen discipline recognised?

Popular with alumni in the inaugural intake in 2014, the Master of Research (known as the MRes) is normally a two-year program, comprising advanced study in a chosen discipline and includes research training components that provide a pathway to PhD candidature.

However, students who have previously completed honours, a coursework Masters program or equivalent, and meet discipline specific entry requirements, may be eligible for direct entry into Year 2 of the program.

To find out more about this program and if you might qualify for Year 2 entry, visit the MRes website. Or if you have further questions contact the MRes team online or by telephone on +61 2 9850 7987.

New law postgraduate degree focuses on international law and politics

Continuing its interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning law, the Macquarie Law School is offering a new postgraduate degree in 2015 that addresses the growing demand from Australian and international students for a postgraduate qualification with a focus on law and politics.

The Master of International Law, Governance and Public Policy (MILGP) degree provides students with a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of relevant legal, governance and policy issues, and extends students’ knowledge of international law, human rights, governance, and policy in both public and private domains.

“The MILGP program is special because students are required to take a blend of units in law and politics in their compulsory units, and may then choose elective units from either or both disciplines to complete their studies,” explains Professor Brian Opeskin, Program Director of MILGP.

Learn more about this postgraduate degree from our courses website or attend the Law Postgraduate Info Night on 8 October.
