Co-operative Education (Co-op)

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 Centre 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!

Effective March 20th, 2020, UNBC students needing access to the Co-op Centre, please email Jennifer Cole (jennifer.cole@unbc.ca) directly with your request and include your meeting availability.  Employers are asked to email Jennifer Cole directly as well with any concerns or changes in current or upcoming work term availability.

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

Co-operative Education (Co-op)

Welcome to the UNBC Co-op Program!

Students, are you looking for a way to gain valuable, paid work experience that actually aligns with your academic interests? Are you worried about what comes next after graduation? Are you concerned about the transition from the academic you to the professional you?

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 your organization forward.

Questions? Email, call, or come see us!
