Bachelor of Laws
Bachelor of Laws student Luke Dominish believes that the best way to enjoy uni is to be active and be involved as much as possible.
I have found that the more I put in at my time at uni, the more I have got out," says Luke who travelled to Germany in May 2014 to present a paper at the G20 Youth Forum 2014 Conference. Luke was among the 1200 international delegates from 200 of the world's top universities who participated in the Forum. He was joined by 9 other fellow students and four staff from Macquarie.
The G20 Youth Forum is not the only extra-curricular activity in Luke's long list. In 2014, he also took a Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) unit - LAWS552 - where he had the opportunity to work on a project for PACOS Trust, a Malaysian NGO. Prior to this, Luke also did an internship with Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. in India as part of another PACE unit (FOBE300).
"I have had the great fortune to take part in many PACE experiences at Macquarie. In the classroom, I am able to learn theory. Through the PACE program, I get to apply theory in the real world. Macquarie's PACE and Global Leadership Program (GLP) give an excellent opportunity to gain interdisciplinary experience. To be able to gain so much practical experience while completing my degree has been invaluable."
"At Macquarie, you don't just get a degree, but you gain experience and exposure that helps you put that degree into practice. Programs such as GLP and PACE are what separate Macquarie from other universities. They have given me the opportunity to work on projects and travel to places that I never would have thought my degree could take me."
