Information for graduate students

Graduate programs and co-op

Are you a graduate student interested in co-op or enrolled in a co-op degree?

There are a number of graduate programs with a co-op option! Some programs are supported by the Department of Co-operative Education, and others are supported by department-specific programming and procedures. 

Regardless of your program, ALL graduate students have access to: 

  • Centre for Career Development supports and services (e.g., advising appointments, workshops, events)
  • CareerHub online resources (e.g., tips for finding work, writing résumés, and job interview prep)
  • WaterlooWorks non-co-op job boards (e.g., other job boards where employers looking to hire graduate students routinely post part-time and full-time jobs)

Review the information below to learn more about co-op in your program so you can make the best use of the services available.
