Cooperative Education program (Co-op)

At Macquarie, industry experience is integrated into all of our undergraduate courses through our award-winning PACE program. With our Co-operative Education (Co-op) programs, we take that a step further, guaranteeing placements for students with industry partners.

In 2019, Macquarie University will offer the following courses as part of our Co-op program.

These highly competitive courses see students alternate between classroom studies and placements throughout their four years of study. Students undertake three placements, totalling 15 months.
