Prospective Co-op Students

Upcoming Kinesiology Co-op Program Information Session. Click here for more information.

The Kinesiology Co-op Program formally integrates a student’s academic studies with valuable, relevant, paid kinesiology related work, with approved work sector organizations.

Each successfully completed co-operative education course will be assigned 6 credits and will be recorded on the student’s transcript. In order to graduate in a co-operative education program, a student must have completed three work terms in addition to the normal academic requirements of the School. Co-operative education course credits cannot be used in lieu of or to complement academic course credits required by the School (normally 120 credits).

As a co-op student you will be well prepared professionally for your future career.
For more information on the Program please contact us at 604-822-4794, by email at kin.coop@ubc.ca, or drop by our offices to speak directly with the Co-op Coordinator.

“My work placement exceeded all my expectations. Not only have I gained invaluable skills and contacts, but I have a foot in an industry that is applicable to my degree in Human Kinetics. I really think this program provides a wonderful chance to gain ‘real-world’ experience prior to graduation.”
