University of Victoria Student Co-op Programs

Co-operative Education, usually known as Co-op, is an integrated approach to higher education which enables bright, highly motivated students to alternate academic terms on campus with relevant, paid, full time work experience.

Successful Co-op graduates complete a degree program with an academic component identical to that of a regular degree program, with the addition of several co-op terms, depending on the program.

The practical experience gained on these structured and supervised work terms is an integral part of the student's education. The term "Co-operative Education " emphasizes the relationship between the employer, the student and the University of Victoria.

Since the mid-1970's UVic Co-op has grown to become the third largest Co-op in Canada. We've built our success on personalized service, high quality work opportunities, and leading-edge technology
