Currently over 300 TRU students participate in the Co-op Education Program (Co-op). Co-op is a for-credit course that combines on-campus study with off-campus paid work experience. This program allows students to apply knowledge and skills developed in the classroom to the practical work environment, enhancing both the academic and employment portions of their university career.
Students enter Co-op at various points in their education depending on their area of study. They participate in 4, 8 or 12 month work terms and work on a full time, paid basis. Work terms begin in September, January and May.
A first for BC Universities - Students are now able to count their Work Terms as elective credit. (Depending on the program, students can earn from 3-6 elective credits towards their graduation requirements).
Applications are currently being accepted for Co-op programs, please check in Old Main 1712 or speak with a Co-op Coordinator for specific details before applying.
Students have access to a variety of Co-op programs depending on their area of study. They can work as account analysts, research assistants, geology field assistants, programmers, and junior biologists, just to name a few.
