What is Co-op?
Co-operative Education combines traditional, in-class education with hands-on experience. Co-op students alternate study terms at Carleton with four, eight, twelve or sixteen month work terms.
Undergraduate students can enter the co-op program in one of two ways. Programs offering the co-op option allow students to apply directly from high school or CEGEP. Alternatively, students can apply to co-op during their first year of study at Carleton. Find out if your program has a co-op option and when your first possible work term would be here.
Graduate students can apply to the co-op option during their first term at Carleton University. Graduate Students must complete two four-month work terms in order to graduate with the co-operative education designation. Find out if your program has a co-op option here.
Every effort is made to provide students with a number of job postings they can apply to via the Co-op Program section of mySuccess. We strongly encourage students to also undertake their own self-directed job search outside the job posting system to increase your opportunity in securing a co-op position. It is the responsibility of the student to secure their own job. Your Co-op Student Advisor is available to discuss job search options and avenues.
