Global leadership


The Global Leadership program (GLP) is a tailored extracurricular program that can be undertaken alongside any degree at Macquarie and is open to all students. GLP is a University-funded program that develops your capability in leadership, cross-cultural understanding and international awareness.

The GLP has been designed so that you not only learn global skills and understanding but you'll put them into practice by studying, volunteering and participating in activities in Australia and abroad. 

An internationally 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 for practical, cultural and academic experiences that have an international or cross-cultural focus.
