Co-NNECTIONS is a unique professional development program designed to enhance the education and career outcomes of students from diverse backgrounds and walks of life at UNSW.

The program takes place over two terms and participants experience a range of professional development activities designed to gradually build confidence and skills whilst forming a community of like-minded peers. These may include a leadership camp, alumni mentoring, industry workshops and for some, a paid professional internship.

Students successful in gaining an internship will also complete a 6 UoC WIL course (CDEV3000) as part of the program.
