    Also, virtual internships are also possible to do alongside university if anyone is interested. Not sure how useful they are from an employment point of view.

    Ouch. Glad I'm overloading and hopefully graduating at the end of this year. As much as I love Macquarie University (kind students, nice campus, passionate staff, good atmosphere)- I don't see myself doing postgraduate here. There's some really bright people in the English department, and it will sadden me if any of their work is in jeopardy. I'm currently considering doing a MRes or a Ph.D. in Literature and I've noticed less scholarships and grants being available.

    Maybe I'm overlooking things... but I don't think Macquarie is doing well on the research front at least in the Humanities & Social Sciences. Not a fan of the direction Macquarie is going into, as I'm sure my post indicated.

    Did a virtual internship last year with an NGO. Granted, it was content writing but I managed to put the skills I learned on my resume and created a portfolio. Will apply to more content writing positions that are paid at the end of the year. No clue what its like for business or law- two professions that can be prone to an 'old school' mentality.

    Doing an internship in an office where you get to meet people directly, communicate ideas and get helpful feedback will always be better than an online alternative- even if we are moving into a 'virtual' workforce era.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Macquarie is really pushing degrees such as the Master of Research so maybe they are trying to improve reputation\ranking through that.

    Does anyone else’s journey to Macquarie increase by at least 30-40ish minutes when travelling during peak times?

    The team hiring is a super busy team. You will get exposure to voluntary administration's / trading on businesses / SME liquidations (CVL/court liquidations).

    You need to be a strong communicator, have an interest in law, strong numeracy skills and an analytical/inquisitive mind.

    You will be given responsibilities on smaller matters from day 1 and an opportunity to progress within the team.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    - WAM/GPA ideally credit average above, however is not a deal breaker if the communication skills are there

    - Market (progression/pay will come fairly quickly thereafter, the team is high performing)

    The Mres (Arts) isn't approved by the AQF- but apparently the second year is part of the Research Training Program.

    Urgh. I love you Macquarie Uni but sometimes you get me down.

    If you can get a certain GPA then you can get your first year paid for if I remember correctly.

    Macquarie University has come out in support of staff and students who wish to participate in the School Strike 4 Climate today, with safeguards to ensure that classes, student services and University operations are not disrupted, and that students who attend are not penalised.

    Macquarie University is telling all students that class is optional. Damn, MQ, have some standards.

    The Vice-Chancellor has sent an e-mail about the Christchurch shootings, and awareness for the range of support services available to students. Note that if you are Islamic and require to use a prayer room, you'll need to swipe your card.

    Census Date is tomorrow, not on Sunday night. So if you need to withdraw, I urge you to do it ASAP! (wow I can't believe I'm going through with five subjects!)
