Vancouver Island University (VIU) focuses on offering a values-based education that balances academic accomplishments with the goal of developing students’ social and relationship skills to last a lifetime, make a difference, and model others to do the same. VIU has over 120 programs and hosts 14,500 students each year.

VIU currently offers nine programs that incorporate the Co-operative Education model. Our co-op program is designed to help students develop skills and knowledge and to improve self-understanding by integrating classroom study with planned and supervised professional, paid work experience.

Students who are registered in the Co-op program can pursue a variety of paid work term opportunities and acquire industry experience to complement their academic training and knowledge.
