If co-op is mandatory for my program, how can I be sure that I will get the placement and experience that I need to graduate?

We know that the spring and fall work terms will present unique challenges for both students and employers. To address that, we’ve developed a number of flexible pathways to help you complete your spring and fall 2020 work terms. It’s our priority to work with our employers to find meaningful work terms for students as well as to equip them to maximize their preparation for work. 

Despite these trying times, 78% of our Canadian employer base has already hired a student for the spring 2020 work term. Our aim is to build on that number as economies begin the process of reopening.

Visit Co-operative Education’s Spring 2020 work term and Fall 2020 work term webpages for details about how the co-op process and requirements have been altered in light of COVID-19, including flexibility in the number of required work terms, changes to our existing work term requirements and allowing exceptions for sequence changes.
