Bachelor of Arts with Bachelor of Laws

Bachelor of Arts with Bachelor of Laws student Nicola O'Brien spent a semester at Carleton University, Ottawa on a Macquarie exchange.

Nicole O'Brien "My Macquarie exchange to Carleton University in Canada began with trepidation and fear. Would I make friends? Will I be homesick? Would my life be dramatically different when I returned? However, as the saying goes, the biggest risks come with the biggest rewards, and I can say that the risk of exchange gave me the biggest rewards."

"In Ottawa I studied international human rights, international organisations, law in the information society and crime; and law, process and politics. Not only will these studies on exchange help me in my future career, I now have a goal to study a Masters of Law, focusing on sports law, at the University of Toronto, Canada, with the aim of working in a law firm in Canada."

"The experience changed me. I've become more aware that everyone has a story and to be more empathetic. The experience has also opened my eyes to more travel and to learning."
