Co-operative (Co-op) education at Laurentian University is a plan of work-integrated learning where students, starting in the second year, put their academic knowledge into action through two paid discipline-related work terms. Work terms begin at the end of the second year for a period of 4 months (April to August of the same year). After completing third year, the student will undertake a placement of 16 months from April to August of the following year. The student will then return to complete one full year of academic study.
