Students should apply to the Co-op program of their current major. Students in a double majors or combined majors program only need to submit ONE application to the program of their choice.

Looks like you have still not decided your specialization. No worries. There is always time. If you are a Science student in the process of deciding, we invite you to explore the various programs in UBC Science Co-op, and, if needed, talk to people from various programs to get a better understanding of the Co-op program and your options. We encourage you to still apply to your tentative area of interest so that one of the coordinators can take a look at your application and advise you.
So far, this Co-op has been an invaluable experience and has taught me a lot about the research process and environment that I never would have learned in a classroom. [My employer] fosters a collaborative and positive atmosphere that makes this job more than just a co-op placement; it makes it an excellent opportunity for personal as well as professional growth.

[My employer] didn't just give me a job to do and leave me be; everything she did made it clear that she cared about my well being and made sure I was maximizing my learning potential.

[Hootsuite] has helped me reach new heights in my career. [My supervisor] always made sure I find enjoyment and meaningful learning in the work that I do. My skills as a full-stack developer have greatly advanced while working at Hootsuite and I owe much of that to [my supervisor].
