COCO have been working with Northumbria University students through the provision of research projects for the MSc programme, dissertation placements and careers events as well as through our society.
“We really value COCO’s support of the MSc International Development programme and students. It’s great for our students to have the opportunity to interact with an organisation working at the frontline of tackling poverty, enabling them to better understand the challenges of working in a small development organisation. COCO’s friendly and approachable team make them an ideal partner for the MSc." Dr Katy Jenkins, Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Northumbria University.
“Our relationship with the MSc International Development programme at Northumbria University gives COCO the opportunity to tap into the minds of students who are up to speed on current development thinking and possess the drive and determination to help us expand our research. The findings from university research projects are invaluable, allowing us to monitor and evaluate our work, learn from each project and put this learning into action to deliver more robust and effective programmes year on year”. Lucy Philipson, CEO, COCO
