Co-operative Education

Co-operative education combines classroom studies with practical work experience outside the university environment, enhancing students' learning by applying, testing, and observing classroom concepts in meaningful work situations.

The University of Prince Edward Island offers co-operative education programs in the Faculty of Business and Faculty of Science.

Interested in becoming a UPEI Co-op student? The next opportunity to apply is September 2020. To discuss the program and how it might benefit you, please contact the Co-op office with your questions or to request a meeting.
