The Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) Co-operative Scholarship Program attracts high-achieving IT students and is regarded as one of Australia’s leading IT programs.
Students are selected through a competitive process and are individually chosen for their management potential, motivation, self-direction, strong communication skills and academic excellence. They are students who are great team players as well as future leaders.
Participating in the program involves funding a scholarship for three years and providing practical workplace experience for two separate full-time 23 week blocks.
By being placed alongside IT professionals, students will learn and apply practical skills and they will also make a real contribution to your team as an additional IT resource. Most students choose to join sponsoring organisations upon graduation. Even if you are not actively recruiting, supporting this program provides an ideal opportunity for your staff to gain experience developing junior staff.

What the sponsors say
Two of our long-standing Bachelor of Information Technology Co-op sponsors, American Express and WiseTech Global outline why they continue to support this program.
“BIT students bring passion, enthusiasm, intelligence and hard-work during their placements and have been able to contribute to the delivery of real customer solutions. The value they provide to WiseTech Global is incredible – it is often a task to remember that they are only students! We are also pleased to announce that we are offering overseas industry placements to BIT students.”
“American Express values our role to help shape first year BIT students through on the job experience. We receive tremendous benefit from the third year students who arrive ready to take accountability for a project and leave a legacy with us. American Express offers Business Analyst roles to graduating BIT students and we find the skills they bring to the role quickly see them progress within our organisation.”
