Graduate and Scholarship Programme
As a graduate or undergraduate in a property-related degree, are you thinking about where to start your career and what you should be looking for in your future employer?
Start with a vibrant, positive, supportive and inclusive culture. Then look for a demonstrated commitment to developing new talent and providing a rich and rewarding career path. Finally, only consider the most respected brand name in your industry of choice.
If you are an undergraduate in the process of completing your degree, Colliers International's Scholarship Programme provides you with practical, hands-on experience and the opportunity to learn from industry-leading professionals. We provide students with exposure to different property specialisations on a rotational basis over a two-year period. After the first year of the programme, students' natural strengths and interests determine where and how their second year rotation is spent.

Here's what some of our Scholarship Students have said about the programme:
"The Colliers International Scholarship programme has offered me invaluable hands on experience and exposure right across the different market sectors through the use of the rotation system and provided me with the essential knowledge to further enhance my career. By working alongside Industry-leading professionals who have been more than willing to assist me and share their insight, my knowledge has increased exponentially which I am able to express through my university studies. The Colliers International team offer a warm and enjoyable working culture which increases motivation and I would highly recommend this program to anyone studying in the area of property."

"The Student Scholarship program at Colliers International is an exceptional way to gain valuable industry exposure and experience whilst completing your property degree at University. There are many things that can’t be taught at Uni, but instead you must experience them by working in the industry. The program allows you to accelerate your knowledge ahead of your peers and gives your career an important head start. The best part of the program is the flexibility to work with the numerous product lines within the Colliers International business, which enables you to work out where you best fit within the industry. I am not sure where I would be or what I would be doing if I hadn’t had the opportunity to join the program when I was at Uni, but I know for a fact that I would be a long way behind where I am today."

The program provides for an invaluable support network of property professionals to aid you in your studies and well as providing those skills required as a working professional not attainable within an academic institution. Rotating through the various business lines during the program provides a solid grounding in the industry from which to leverage off when launching into your full time career. Having completed the program and now working in a full time capacity I consider Colliers International to be a market leader in the industry offering a friendly, positive and progressive environment in which to operate as a property professional”
