International student legal information
My Legal Mate - free legal information at your fingertips
Macquarie is the first university in NSW to offer our international students free access to an innovative, multilingual legal information app that addresses issues you might experience while you’re studying in Australia.
My Legal Mate is the first-of-its-kind app that allows international students to get 24/7 access to free legal resources. The app provides legal information about areas such as employment, housing, disputes and sexual assault. The video format and ‘Questions and Answers’ modules offer practical solutions in several different languages – English, Mandarin, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese, Thai and Vietnamese.
This is another great initiative delivered by Macquarie’s Student Success Network - the range of services and support available to help you get the most out of your time at Macquarie.
