All of our areas of study include programs where in addition to academic studies you will be able to have access to practical working experience in one of our co-op and practicum programs. In these programs the co-op and practicum components form an integral part of your studies and are recognized with a 5 credit-hours load. International students enrolled in our co-op diploma programs can apply for a Canadian Work Permit.
Arbutus College has developed strong relationships with local businesses, so students can expect quality co-op placements in many different types of companies. Our co-op workstudy programs will help you build a strong business network and will give you valuable work experience.
As a result of this useful work experience, our graduates are ready to meet the challenges of today’s competitive environment.
