Applying to co-op

Start your career with co-op

Conestoga offers both optional and mandatory co-op programs.

Mandatory co-op

For mandatory co-op programs, students apply directly to the Conestoga co-op program.

Optional co-op

Where a program is offered as "Optional Co-op", students apply first to the regular program. Upon completion of first term, current Conestoga students may apply to the co-op option.

International students

International students enrolled in co-op must adhere to the same policies and procedures as domestic students. In addition, international students will require a co-op work permit and a Social Insurance Number to be eligible to work in Canada. For more information, please contact the International Office.​
