Expansion and Experience
Having to stay in the same job for all my co-op terms was a concern when I first looked into co-op. With co-op, I would be able to experience different ways of working based on environment and the way my employer runs operations.

Off to work we go
At the start of my research into university, I had not even considered co-op as an option. I originally thought that co-op seemed like it was bringing me into the working world early, but after looking into it a little more I realized it is rather useful.

University costs how much?
When I was younger, I thought that everyone had to pay the exact same amount for tuition. I also incorrectly assumed that your tuition included residence and a meal plan. The cost of tuition varies based on what program you apply for and whether you are a Canadian student or an international student.

Full-time or Part-time?
TV shows and movies has falsely taught me that students go to university throughout the year – fall, winter, and summer. After talking to people and researching more, I found out that you do not have to go for the full year and you do not even have to study full time.

The right pathway for me
Before looking into the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program, I had no idea what an accreditation pathway was and how it worked. University of Waterloo’s School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) has received the highest level of accreditation from the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) Canada and the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Institute, providing students with a direct pathway to the CPA and/or CFA designation.
