Exchange and overseas opportunities
"Living independently in a foreign country gave me a chance to identify my strengths and weaknesses away from home. Exchange is a truly remarkable and character building experience."
Bachelor of Arts with a Bachelor of Laws and Macquarie University Mobility Scholarship recipient.
The best way to truly immerse yourself in global issues is to experience them first hand. We make it a priority to support your globe-trekking ambitions by having one of the most generous travel grant schemes of any university in Australia. Travel with your course and you’re almost guaranteed funds to help you on your way.
Our Student Exchange program is one of the best. Study for just a couple weeks or a whole session. Not learning a language? No worries. You have many options to take courses taught in English in locations that may surprise you. The choice is yours.
Macquarie’s unique PACE program facilitates valuable practical experiences in Australia and overseas. So, you could find yourself teaching English to disadvantaged youth in Vietnam, helping young people gain employment in India or helping fight child labour in the Philippines. This is just a snapshot; our range of PACE options is extensive.
The Global Leadership Program (GLP) is a University-funded extracurricular program that is open to all students, and can be undertaken alongside any degree at Macquarie. The GLP gives you the opportunity to get a global education right here on campus, and will inspire you to connect with the local and international community through practical experiences that have a leadership, international, or cross-cultural focus. Through the GLP you will gain valuable skills and experiences, and build important networks before you graduate, helping you feel job-ready.
