Macquarie mates

Macquarie mates

Are you new to Australia or Macquarie? Are you part of the Faculty of Human Sciences?

If so, ease your way into life at Macquarie by matching with one of our friendly, fun and knowledgeable mates.

The Faculty of Human Sciences is running Macquarie Mates, a new buddy scheme for international students throughout 2017. You can join a small group of new and existing international students and will be introduced to an Australian mate who has been studying at Macquarie for two or more years. 

Your mate will help you to settle in to life and study at Macquarie. You will meet regularly with your mate or in small groups and join in with university activities. This is a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with Macquarie, make new friends, meet Australian and international students and get the most out of your time on campus.

Activities include:

  • English language support
  • careers support
  • Aussie barbecue and games
  • exploring local restaurants
  • beach trips
  • cafe visits

Register your interest and tell us a bit about yourself by completing our questionnaire.
