Cooperative Education program
Cooperative Education program (Co-op)
As part of our transformative approach to education, we’ve launched a new work-integrated learning initiative – undergraduate Cooperative (Co-op) Education that will improve your employability outcomes and professional networks. Available through our Bachelor of Actuarial Studies with Bachelor of Professional Practice and our new Bachelor of Commerce - Professional Accounting with the Bachelor of Professional Practice, the programs provides an opportunity for you to alternate between classroom studies and workplace experience in the form of three industry placements of three to six months each. This will allow you both to apply the concepts you learn in the classroom in a professional context and to integrate your understanding from the workplace in your future studies.
Co-op disciplines and program rollout
