At the heart of Co-op work integrated learning at UBC Okanagan is a desire to connect—through people and environments that expand our world view and enrich our learning, work, and daily lives. Co-op is an opportunity for diverse communities to come together in a shared purpose of collaborative learning.

The Interdisciplinary Co-op Education program is an invitation to both student and employer to partner and grow connections through work integrated learning that benefits communities.

As a student, you gain experience and learn by doing while deepening your skills, creating new relationships, and strengthening your resiliency and confidence.

As an employer, you have a unique opportunity to connect with an interdisciplinary network of students and researchers at UBC and gain fresh perspectives and expertise for direct impact to your organization through these relationships.

An Interdisciplinary Advantage


At SE-CHANGE, we work across UBC, with communities locally, regionally, nationally and internationally to surface knowledge from diverse perspectives to create interdisciplinary contexts where research and learning can be actively transformed. The benefit of this engagement is a vibrant network that students and employers can tap into and benefit from in tangible ways that make an impact. Explore the opportunities co-op experiences can bring—to your academic career, your organization, and your community.
