Best Response - What is co-op?

What is co-op?

Co-operative Education integrates your academic studies with related work experience. 3-5 paid work terms alternate with academic semesters throughout your degree following a sequence specific to your academic program.

Guelph's co-op program is similar to a true job hunt process where you apply and compete for jobs that interest you rather than being placed in a job.

You will submit a work report for each of your work terms and your employer will evaluate your performance. Each of these grades and your work term details will appear on your official academic transcript.

For more information on Co-operative Education, see the information for Prospective Students on the University of Guelph Co-operative Education & Career Services website.
