The Co-operative Education Programs at the University of Ottawa allow you to apply the concepts you learn in class through paid placements in the workplace. After just over four years of study, you get not only a diploma that shows you took part in the CO-OP program, but also a strong resumé with around 16 months of work experience in your field of study. With these assets, it will be easier for you to find work once you’re done.
For more information about CO-OP, we invite you to attend one of our information sessions taking place in September. Please note that for most programs, the deadline to apply for CO-OP is September 30 of your second year.
For the application deadline specific to your program of study and other pertinent information, please consult the Programs page of the CO-OP website.
