COPC09Y3 International Development Studies Co-op Work Term

The purpose of the work term placement is for students to gain experience in the professional world of development while applying knowledge gained in the classroom to real life experiences. The majority of students secure work terms with Canadian NGOs, research institutes or private sector consulting firms. Work terms are 8-12 months in length. The location and duration of the work terms will vary according to each student’s disciplinary and regional preferences, their experience and abilities, the availability of positions, and the practicability and safety of work.
