Internship Option 

Apply your classroom skills in the workplace and bring your workplace skills back to the classroom! An Internship 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.

To participate in Co-operative Education, prior to your first work term you will need to successfully complete

  • Complete all courses, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (C+), and
  • the workshop series CO-OP WEP

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. 

Together you determine what timeline is most appropriate for you to take the mandatory Workplace Preparation course COOP WEP before your first work term.

International students

Under Canadian Immigration Law, as an international student you are eligible to participate in co-operative education and you can legally work in Canada during specified work terms.  The Work Permit Checklist for international students will assist in planning your participation in co-operative education.
