The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a public research university with campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna, B.C. and is the oldest university in the province. It is a global centre for teaching, learning, and research and is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world.

UBC’s robust co-op program gives students access to vetted employers who are interested in mentoring and supporting students. This allows students to build a professional network of valuable employment contacts and lasting connections with like-minded, talented professionals. Co-op students are paid at industry standard wages for their work, giving them the chance to earn money while building career-related skills. There are opportunities to travel across Canada or around the world for co-op terms, allowing students to benefit from invaluable personal and professional growth while seeing new places and experiencing diverse cultures.

Students have access to carefully picked job opportunities, some of which are exclusively available to co-op students, and they can build up their resumes while gaining new skills and gaining professional work experience.
