Global Leadership Program

You’re socially aware and ready to take on the world. But how do you make an impact? We give you the tools you need to drive real change, with a focus on cross-cultural and leadership skills, global issues and innovation.

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. 

An international award winning program

The GLP is the proud recipient of the Institute for International Education's 2017 Heiskell award for Innovation in International Education - Internationalising the Campus. Macquarie University is the first Southern Hemisphere university to receive the award in its 17 year history.

Gain recognition for your participation and initiative

Successful completion of the GLP will see you receive a certificate of completion, reference letters and a GLP transcript as well as notation on your official academic transcript, which can provide a competitive edge in the global employment market.

You will be awarded credit towards your GLP for practical, cultural and academic experiences that have an international or cross-cultural focus, giving you the opportunity to get practical experience before you graduate.
