Are you a graduate student interested in co-op? There are a number of graduate programs with a co-op option.
Not all grad programs are currently supported by the Department of Co-operative Education and the associated co-op job postings within WaterlooWorks. Those programs that are not supported by Co-operative Education offer "co-op" terms through department-specific programming and procedures.
However, ALL graduate students regardless of program are supported by the Centre for Career Action and the services they provide. In addition, ALL graduate students have access to the non co-op job boards in WaterlooWorks. Employers looking to hire graduate students (for part-time or full-time employment) routinely post to these boards. Employers seeing graduate co-op students for programs not supported by Co-operative Education are also encouraged to post to these boards.
Review the information below to learn more about co-op in your program so you can make the best use of the services available.
The following graduate programs are fully supported by the Department of Co-operative Education which includes access to co-op jobs posted in WaterlooWorks during the recruiting period and optional access to COOP 601, an online co-op prep course. Other programs also receive additional specialized support from Co-operative Education, based on the nature of the program in question.
For details on the requirements of each co-op program of study, please visit the Graduate Studies Academic Calendar and contact the appropriate Graduate Coordinator.
If your program is in the table below, please visit our Grad co-op and WaterlooWorks site to learn how to make the most of your graduate co-op term.
