€1M for new international research partnership

€1M for new international research partnership

The German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD) has awarded €1million for the development of a trilateral strategic research partnership between the University of Hamburg (Germany), Macquarie University and Fudan University (China). The funding, provided over four years, will support international training opportunities for Masters’ students and PhD candidates, dual and joint degree programs and facilitate joint research initiatives. To date, research projects have been identified in urban development, marine and coastal systems, physics, climate change, and cancer research. Further work is being done to develop future collaborations in other disciplines. 
Are Australian university graduates ready for work?

Are Australian university graduates ready for work?

What do international students want from their international education? As well as experience, it is usually a job, but are they prepared? Australian universities and businesses recently launched a new national strategy acknowledging the need to work together to ensure graduates are work-ready once they finish their degrees. Businesses are seeking more industry-relevant soft skills and a clear benefit to them by participating in university practicum programs. So how can students gain access to programs which more effectively integrate curriculum and practical career experience?Macquarie is well ahead of our competition, having launched PACE more than five years ago. The program offers undergrad students a wide range of opportunities to broaden their study experience – from internships at international corporations like Microsoft, community development skills building classrooms in Peru, and many opportunities in between.
