Graduate Studies Work Experience Program
The Graduate Studies Work Experience Program is intended for students in the Faculty of Graduate Studies who are enrolled in full-time studies, leading to master's or doctoral degrees. Students participating in the Graduate Studies Work Experience Program will complete one work experience term, that is, four months of full-time, discipline-related work under the supervision of the appropriate graduate Co-op Program. Approval to participate in the graduate work experience program is at the discretion of the student's academic unit, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Executive Director of Co-operative Education. Where approval is granted, procedures must adhere to the regulations set out under the General Regulations for Graduate Co-op programs in the University Calendar.
In academic units where a formal graduate Co-operative Education program exists, work opportunities are negotiated through the appropriate Co-operative Education coordinator. Where no formal co-op program exists, graduate co-op placements are negotiated on an individual basis and may be initiated by interested employers, academic unit's representatives or graduate students. In this case, students are directed to consult with the Office of the Director, Co-operative Education Program.
For information, please contact the Co-operative Education Coordinator or the Graduate Adviser in the academic unit concerned.
