 One of the main reasons why International Students chose Canada after the quality and cost of education is Co-op Programs (Internships). The international students can get a non-paid or paid internship in Canada depending on the employer. Through this article let us understand the entire concept of Co-op Programs along with the eligibility criteria and the process of application as well.

Know what Co-op is:

Co-op education, or co-operative education, is a program where students get the chance to work in an industry related to their field. Most co-op programs are structured so that each term or semester or schooling is alternated with a term or semester of work. A work term is the period or works outside the school. The university and college students who are placed at companies or other organizations for their work terms are paid for their work.

Eligibility Criteria for Co-op:

In some universities, few programs include work experience as a part of their curriculum. You can apply for a co-op or internal work permit if you meet the following criteria:

  1. A valid study permit
  2. Work is required to complete your study program in Canada
  3. School approval letter confirming that all students enrolled for the program need to complete work placements to get the degree
  4. Co-op placement or internship up to 50% or less of your study program

The conditions which you stop from applying for Co-op are:

You need to make sure that you take full precaution to not follow into the below category if you wish to apply for a Co-op Program.

  1. English or French as a second language (ESL / FSL),
  2. General interest courses
  3. to prepare for another study program

But don't worry at all, if you are not eligible for a co-op work permit, but you want to work in Canada, you need to apply for a work permit. 

How to Apply for the Co-op Program:

Once you are in Canada you can apply for your co-op work permit. It will generally match the expiry date or your study permit. If there is time for your study permit to expire, then you need to apply for a co-op work permit only. If your study permit expires soon, you can apply for a co-op work permit at the same time you apply to extend your study permit, usually 3-4 months before your study permit expiry.

Don't you think Canada is the best option for studying abroad, keeping in mind the Co-op aspect?
