Macquarie University's Global Leadership Entry Pr
Early Entry schemes: Posted 26-5-16 Deadline - No Deadline
The first early entry scheme for 2016 has opened: Macquarie University's Global Leadership Entry Program (GLEP) is designed for Year 12 students who are deeply engaged with the world and the big issues shaping society. As an extracurricular program undertaken alongside a degree, GLEP will develop and inspire students to be a global leader of tomorrow. Students selected for the GLEP will complete a series of workshops where they will learn about global issues and social challenges that face our world. Students will develop their ability for leadership and global citizenship through self-directed opportunities to volunteer, intern and participate in seminars and conferences in both Australia and overseas. Applications are now open for the GLEP 2017 intake. Students selected for GLEP will receive an early offer for Session 1, 2017. Macquarie University recognise students are more than an ATAR so they won’t just be assessing applicants on their academic results, but also on their extracurricular achievements and community involvement. If students are successful they’ll be offered a place at Macquarie before they finish Year 12. They’ll also get to participate in exclusive on-campus activities while they’re still at school, as well as gain early access to our facilities. Students will require assistance with completing their application and the Supporting Information Form, which must have endorsement from your Principal or their nominee. Visit mq.edu.au/glep to learn what degrees students can study with the GLEP, entry requirements and step by step information on how to apply. If students have any questions they can see Mrs Barrett or contact Student Connect via the online enquiry form or call (02) 9850 6410.
