Real-life learning

Charley

Charley Zhang spent a co-op term working for the BC Cancer Agency.

Learning beyond the classroom

At UVic, learning involves so much more than listening to a lecture.

Co-operative education

Co-op programs allow students to alternate working in their field of study for government, industry and academic employers. It's a great way to get valuable experience, make connections with employers, and earn some decent money to pay tuition. Every field in science has a co-op program with connection to local, regional, national and international employers.

Here you'll be challenged to learn in new and dynamic ways. It's a great opportunity to sample areas within your field and explore your career options before you graduate.

There is an annual competition held for video and photo submissions by UVic co-op students.   Take a moment to browse through the current and past winners of the photo and video contests.
