Currently over 300 TRU students participate in the TRU Co-operative Education Program.

Co-operative Education is an academic program that blends on-campus learning with practical applied learning. This program provides students the opportunity to enhance their education by acquiring career related work experience before graduation.

Students alternate study terms with paid, monitored works terms in professional industry, non-profit, private business, and public sector organizations.

While on a work term, Co-op students also participate in an online co-op course which requires them to reflect on their professional experiences and consider the skills they are building in business.

Applications are currently being accepted for Co-op programs.
