Workshops and Payments

UBC Science Co-op offers workshops for students to enhance their skills in resume and cover letter writing, and other skills. We also offer an Employers Panel periodically to give students an idea of the types of employers and work term placements that are available. The Co-op workshop fee is $242.25 by debit or credit card. 

2018 Winter Workshop Fee is due on January 15th, 2018  

*Students who do not pay by the deadline will not have access to job postings on Scope.
