North Ryde. Deal with government

Macquarie University has struck a deal with the federal government to proceed with a postgraduate research degree structure aligned to global norms. From next year, Macquarie will offer a two-year master of research as the main pathway into a PhD and will enrol 200 bachelor-degree graduates in the master’s degree, which will lead to a three-year PhD, according to The Australian Financial Review. Macquarie has committed $1.6 million on scholarships for students who enrol in the first year of the pathway program in 2013.
