The CO-OP program at uOttawa is one of the largest in Canada. Students can opt for hands-on work experience in their field of study while completing their degree. This program not only allows you to get a head start on your career, but, as a French Immersion student, you have yet another way to integrate your second language into your lifestyle and bring it out of the classroom.
Bilingual students have access to a larger number of CO-OP placements in the Ottawa area, as positions often require some proficiency in both languages. Students may also find their own placement, so if you know of a company or organization in Timmins, Saguenay or Victoria that needs someone bilingual, you may propose to do your CO-OP there!
