Macquarie University takes its pride of place among the best and brightest minds as its research leads the way in ground-breaking discoveries. It was built to break from traditions: to be distinctive, progressive, and transformational.
It is no wonder that it has partnered with the National Research and Innovation Agency of Uruguay (ANII) to promote the training of Uruguayan students in a Masters or PhD program at Macquarie University in specific research disciplines via co-funded scholarships.
