Professional Education Partnerships

UniSQ’s Professional Education Partnerships (PEP) program is a networking and relationship building initiative between industry partners, students, and UniSQ. The aim is to create a pipeline of graduates from regional or rural areas who have gained real-world experience throughout their studies, and who will remain in these areas after graduation.

With the wide range of degrees and specialisations you can choose to study through our PEP program, opportunities to learn and enhance your skill sets in your chosen field are plentiful. The PEP program is being expanded to include additional programs. Please contact us if you are interested in a specialisation not listed.

Discover the key roles that UniSQ, the Industry Partner and the UniSQ student will play as part of a successful PEP.

Am I eligible to apply?

To be eligible to participate in the Professional Education Partnership program you must be enrolled as a UniSQ student, live in a regional or rural area, and obtain/have employment relevant to your degree. Students must be satisfactorily progressing throughout their degrees as per the Student Academic Progress Procedure, as well as adhering to the Student Code of Conduct Policy. If you are unsure about the entry requirements, need support in finding employment or have any other questions, please contact us.
