Federation University Cooperative Education Model
From Sigourney Baird
The cooperative education model bridges on campus learning with workplace learning, and will see our students gain the practical skills employers are looking for by completing accredited learning in a workplace as part of their studies.
The University’s co-op programs will be developed and delivered in partnership with industry and employers and will provide academic credit for real workplace experience across all programs from 2025. Pilot programs in IT and Business will begin in 2023.
To implement the model, academics, students and industry engagement experts have been brought together in three newly established Institutes to guarantee programs meet the needs of students, industry and employers.
