Support high achievers
Support the brightest students with industry placements.
As part of our transformative approach to education, we offer a work-integrated learning initiative – cooperative (Co-op) education.
Co-op programs allow high-achieving students the opportunity to enhance their practical skills as they alternate study with industry placements.
By offering talented students professional experience within your workplace, you’ll not only gain fresh perspectives from the brightest young minds, but also foster their comprehensive education and career preparation.
In 2019, Macquarie University will offer the following courses as part of our Co-operative Education program (Co-op):
- Bachelor of Actuarial Studies with the degree of Bachelor of Professional Practice
- Bachelor of Commerce - Professional Accounting with the degree of Bachelor of Professional Practice
Boost your organisation's profile by partnering with Macquarie and leveraging both our reputation and our network.
