The University of Victoria (UVic) offers hands-on experience integrated with research-inspired teaching to accelerate personal growth and career success. Civic engagement is a key part of our mission, and our faculty, students, and staff work with community partners locally and globally to tackle issues that matter to people, places, and the planet.

UVic has one of Canada’s largest university co-operative education programs with more than 3,200 placements each year. Co-op integrates academic studies with relevant paid work experience in more than 40 academic areas, with one in three UVic undergraduates taking part.

UVic’s co-op program offers a unique approach to help students start building their career while still at university. It is designed to work around student’s academic courses, so students can complement what they’re learning in class with practical workplace experience, graduating with a resume packed with relevant experience.
