Co-operative Education (Co-op)

Welcome to the UNBC Co-op Program

January 2024 Co-op Intake is now closed, if you have applied, please expect a response by Feb 16th.

Employers, are you looking for a way to hire today’s best and brightest? Are you interested in helping mentor and shape the future workforce? Are you wanting a better connection to the UNBC academic community?

If you’ve answered yes to one (or more) of these questions, you’ve come to the right place.

The UNBC Co-op program offers:

  • undergraduate students the tools and supports necessary to be successful in gaining relevant, paid work experience, before having graduated, and
  • employers the opportunity to connect with and hire UNBC Co-op students to help move their organization forward.

Co-operative Education during COVID-19

The UNBC Co-op Centre continues to offer its services during regular business hours; services will be delivered by Email, Telephone or Video Conferencing.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Co-op Office has made a few changes so that we can continue to provide services to our current and potential Co-op students and employers. We thank you for your patience as we continue to provide support to you!

Please continue to practice social distancing to help contain the spread of the virus and to remember to take care of yourself and those around you!  For more information specific to the UNBC Community about COVID-19 please visit the UNBC Coronavirus (COVID-19) website.
