Programs with Co-op Option
Cooperative education (or co-operative education) is a method of combining classroom-based education with practical work experience. A cooperative education experience (“co-op”), provides academic credit for structured job experience. Co-ops are full-time, paid or unpaid positions.
Work While Studying
Full-time undergraduate and postgraduate international students can work anywhere on and off campus for up to 20 hours per week without a work permit. On average, a part-time student would earn anywhere from $800-$1500 a month (e.g. 20 hours/week x $11/hour x 4 week = $880). After applying for a work permit, international students become eligible to work as a co-op student or an intern.
*The option to work while studying is unavailable for ESL students.
