Inspiring co-operative enterprise through education

Student Co-operatives

The co-operative model provides a powerful method for university students to join together and solve some of their most pressing problems while in education. Students around the world have co-operated to develop solutions to issues such as:

  • lack of transport facilities;
  • expensive housing;
  • inadequate food and drink provision; and
  • access to learning materials.

See the examples section for details of some of the inspiring and practical ways students are utilising the co-operative model. There are also details of support networks for students who wish to set up a co-operative while in higher or further education.
