Cooperative Education

COVID-19 Updates

Although all of Sheridan’s campuses are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Co-op department is still working with employers and students to provide valuable experiential learning experiences.

Our Spring/Summer job board remains open and students continue to be active in their job search for remote or in-person internships. We will also soon be introducing a new Virtual Internship and Social Innovation Program in which students from our degree programs can apply their skills, creativity and energy to help local government, businesses, community foundations, non-profits and charities recover from the pandemic.

Student Success Story

Sheridan graduate Akita Cachia Costa will be the first to tell you that Cooperative Education can open your mind to creative possibilities and task-efficiency. As a graduate of Sheridan’s Bachelor of Illustration, one-year Arts Fundamentals program and the one-year Digital and Creative Arts program, Akita has the educational background to take on any job she desires in her field.

Kaye (Kawen) Mao has the privilege of being Sheridan’s first ever student to be selected for a Co-op work term with Google in New York City. Her strength as a leader quickly became evident as she not only led a team as project manager with Google, but also increased motivation and classroom attendance in her program, Sheridan’s new Honours Bachelor of Interaction Design.
