School Visits and Career Markets

The Co-op Program welcomes applications from high schools students Australia-wide and we want to get the message out to as many students as possible.

One of our key outreach activities is to have a Co-op Scholar Ambassador visit schools and careers markets to talk to students, their parents, and teachers about what Co-op is and how to apply. These visits can be in-person for schools in greater Sydney, or virtual visits via Zoom for schools around Australia and even overseas.

As current Co-ops these 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, trying to decide their next step. They offer a very real, honest 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.
