Co-op/ Internship Placement

Cooperative education (or co-operative education) and internships are methods of combining classroom-based education with practical work experience. A cooperative education experience ("co-op"), provides academic credit for structured job experience. Co-ops are full-time, paid or unpaid positions. Internships may be full-time or part-time, paid or unpaid positions.

Work While Studying

Even if students do NOT meet Queen’s University’s minimum English requirement (IELTS or TOEFL), they can still get conditionally accepted in the program of their choice with the condition of completing Queen’s QBridge program prior to starting their chosen program.
