Co-operative Education Option
Apply your classroom skills in the workplace and bring your workplace skills back to the classroom! A Co-op work term is a great opportunity to gain work experience in your field while enrolled in your academic program.
When you engage in co-operative education, you get an early start on preparing for your career after graduation! You will be joining a growing number of students who choose the opportunity to alternate between full-time studies and full-time paid work where you can bring your applied classroom learning to life.
Co-operative education is a learner-centered model that empowers you, the student, to direct your own learning and to make a valuable contribution in the workplace. Your learning will be guided and supported by both your employer and the School with a faculty member from your program assigned to coach, monitor, and evaluate your work term development.
Talk to your Co-op & Internship Coordinator, or login to the Co-op and Career Portal to book a Co-op Information Appointment with an Employment Facilitator to get more information. Connect with your Academic Advisor to plan your program and how co-operative education can fit.
