Australia’s leading employers are gaining early access to some of the nation’s best and brightest students by providing Co-op scholarships and professional development to exceptional students at UNSW.

sponsors co-op

Sponsors are directly involved in the selection of scholars for the program. Representatives are invited to participate in interview panels with academics and the Co-op team to select the scholar.

Industry experience

Sponsors are key in providing Co-op scholars with industry training and experience.


Sponsors are given first access to the graduating cohort each year at Recruitment Events, where they can talk to scholars and offer graduate positions if appropriate.

Scholar/program engagement

Sponsors are also involved as speakers at many of our Co-op events for both future and current students.
