Engage with our students and graduates

Macquarie University is committed to developing strong links with industry and employers. We offer a range of opportunities for you to promote your brand and engage with our students.

What if you could achieve your organisational goals while inspiring tomorrow’s leaders?

Our employer partner programs allow you to do that and much more. Partner with us to build your professional network, engage with enthusiastic students and recruit fresh new talent.

Opportunities

Completely customised to your organisation’s needs; a partnership could give you the following opportunities:

Offer mutually beneficial placement opportunities to motivated students.

Our PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program allows you to connect with motivated students by offering a range of practical work experience activities. When it comes to hiring, you’ll be able to select from a pool of potential recruits already familiar with your business and culture.

Realise the potential of PACE

At Macquarie University, PACE provides opportunities for highly motivated, capable and work-ready students to contribute to partner organisations. You also gain access to an innovative group of academics and researchers, and a community of inspiring partner organisations.

We have more than 3000 partner organisations from local, regional and international spheres, which span all sectors of the economy and society across private, public, community-based and not-for-profit sectors.

Support the brightest scholars with vocational placements.

Through our newly developed Cooperative education (Co-op) programs, you can bring high-achieving students into your organisation, for professional experience. Benefit from their refreshing points of view while fostering their career progression.
