Co-op Option

Students in this program may apply to the Co-op program during their second academic semester. Enrolment in the Co-op program is limited through an additional Co-op application process that takes place at the end of the first year. Students in the Co-op program are eligible to complete three Co-op work terms prior to graduation. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in Co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship.

Co-operative Education is a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with paid or unpaid work experience within a professional environment. Co-op work terms are related specifically to the academic studies of each student. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.

Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the work term. The Co-op component is delivered by Sheridan’s Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 Co-op/Internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
