Global Leadership Program

As part of Macquarie's commitment to internationalisation and innovation, the Global Leadership Program (GLP) equips students with the leadership potential, professional skills and international experiences to pursue a truly international career.

International Student Buddy

The buddy program requires us, a thirty- member team, to assist new overseas students to get an overall sense on their study and life in Sydney.

During the two weeks orientation, we as guides helped thousands of new students to get in the position.
