Co-op education. At UVic, learning extends beyond the classroom. Our co-operative education program (co-op) lets you gain a year of relevant, paid work experience and a better chance of landing your dream job after graduation.
Students enrolled in co-op education alternate semesters on campus in class with paid work semesters in your field of study. Students must complete 3 or 4 work terms during an undergraduate degree. Co-op is designed to be a collaborative undertaking between students, employers and the university.
