We work alongside you to map out your career journey, and through customized individual coaching and curriculum focused on career management, our goal is to support you in defining and pursuing a meaningful internship and ultimately a meaningful career. 

Global Internship

Home of the first co-op program in western Canada, UVic has a well-established Co-op & Career Office that has developed relationships across many industries to help students connect with internship positions in their chosen field. In the MGB program, you will complete a minimum 3-month to a maximum 8-month paid or unpaid internship, which will allow you to put the knowledge you’ve learned in the classroom into practice, and gain marketable experience.

Your global internship can be in Canada or abroad. Hundreds of jobs are posted to the UVic Co-op & Career portal each term, and students can choose to apply to a range of positions in different industries and different countries.

International students wishing to work in Canada will be provided with the support to apply for a Co-op Work Permit, which is required for international students to undergo in an internship in Canada. 

In the MGB program, you will gain first-hand business experience by completing an internship. When it comes to length, role and location, MGB internships are incredibly diverse. Discover some of the global internships our MGB students have completed over the years.

To successfully obtain your global internship and prepare you for your future career, your MGB program includes a professional development and career management course. This course is tailored to provide the training and skills development you need to undertake your internship as well as to launch your future career. Included are cover letter and résumé writing, skills assessment and analysis, networking, interview skill development and career planning. 

Throughout the program, there are numerous opportunities for networking and career exploration and development including an opportunity to meet local employers and practice your interview skills at our MGB Mock Interview Clinic.
