New program in Data Science and Decisions!

The Co-op Program is launching a new Data Science and Decisions to help connect young brilliant minds with the maths careers of tomorrow!

The Data Science and Decisions has been developed to train scientists to meet the current, and future, strong demand for Data Scientists and Data Analysts. This Program will equip graduates with the skills to analyse and interpret the growing volumes and convert this information into insights, which can transform businesses and industries. 

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.

"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."
Caroline Flynn, Industrial Chemistry scholar, Loreto Normanhurst

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.

“The industry placements offer invaluable experience. They expose you to real life jobs and work environments where you learn skills unattainable in the classroom. These placements allow you to explore your career path and understand what you like or dislike working on, giving you a great head start.”

Davina Adisusila, Computer Science scholar, St Ursula's College Kingsgrove

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.
