EARN MONEY WHILE IN SCHOOL

Co-operative Education, offered in the Co-op & Career Development Centre, allows you to alternate semesters of full-time study with paid work terms to gain practical, career-related work experience in your field. You will be provided with opportunities to meet alumni, employers, and sponsors, or join associations who will help you grow valuable connections. Apply in your first year to get a head start on your career.


“Through my Co-op experience, I have genuinely learned so much about myself and built confidence, skills, and relationships that will last a lifetime.”

Mikayla | Canada, BBA Graduate, Langara


WORK EXPERIENCE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Eligible international students, with a valid study permit, can work part-time without a work permit as long as you maintain full-time student status. Co-op students must apply for a Co-op Work Permit through Immigration Canada. After graduating from a certificate, diploma, degree program, or post-degree program you may be eligible to apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit.

VIRTUAL EXCHANGE

PARTICIPATE IN A VIRTUAL EXCHANGE

Use online tools to develop digital literacy that bridges geographic boundaries while learning with other students at partner institutions around the world. Become more aware of cultural differences and more competent in your ability to be flexible and adaptable in an intercultural environment.


“It is integral that we come together as global citizens to support one another and work together. Through the virtual exchange, we are proud to provide our students with the skills necessary to adapt and manage whatever circumstances arise in the workplace and in the world.”

Erin Wilkins | Department Chair of Recreation Studies
