Program Summary


Co-op

Students enter this program in either the Co-op or non-Co-op program. Continuation in the Co-op program is conditional on maintaining the established minimum required academic standard. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in Co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship. If there are seats available, students in the non-Co-op program may have the opportunity to apply to the Co-op program at the end of first year. This would be a competitive process with limited seats available. Students in the Co-op program are eligible to complete two Co-op work terms prior to graduation.

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.
