About Co-op

Co-operative Education (Co-op) combines academic studies with relevant work experience. Academic semesters alternate with work terms, giving you up to two years of relevant work experience. The UFV Arts, Business, Library Information and Technology (LIBIT), Computer Information Systems (CIS), and Science diploma and degree Co-op programs are nationally accredited by the Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL Canada), a recognized seal of quality.

Work terms are 4, 8, or 12 months in duration. Co-op work term placements are not guaranteed but are awarded on a competitive basis. The hiring decision is up to the employer.

For more information about the Co-op program, including the admission requirements, see the Co-operative Education handout below:
