School Visits and Career Markets

The Co-op Program recruits from high schools Australia wide. We try to get the message out about the program to as many students as possible.

A major promotion activity undertaken by the program is sending our Co-op Scholar Ambassadors out to schools and careers markets to talk to students, their parents, and their teachers about Co-op and how to apply.

Our Scholar Ambassadors share their unique stories and experiences gained through the program and directly relate to the students who are approaching the end of high school and wondering what to do next. They offer a very real insight into what it means to be a Co-op scholar studying at UNSW.

The Co-op opportunity and your students

Co-op launches careers!

Offering support and guidance, blending tertiary study with industry experience, the Co-op Program opens up a world of opportunities for students to create their own careers. We select students with leadership potential and a passion for a particular industry to delve head first into their chosen field and hit the ground running.

"It is a phenomenal professional and personal experience that will challenge, excite and move you - helping you unlock your potential and discover the true route you want to take in life."

Adam Hegedus, Commerce Information Systems scholar, Waverley College

For high school students unsure of what career may suit them or seeking more information about a particular career path, Co-op offers a Create Your Career Evening offering advice from academics, industry and current scholars from our program streams, including Business, Technology, Engineering and Science. Students have the opportunity to talk one on one and ask questions about the field of study/industry providing a chance to evaluate if this is the path for them.

"Co-op gives you the opportunity to challenge yourself beyond your studies by helping to enhance your leadership and industry skills. I applied for Co-op because I wanted the chance to extend myself throughout my time at university."
