Frequently asked questions for students about Co-op work terms
Q. I am not in my graduating semester. Can I return to school and do my co-op at a later date?
A. Yes. Students who are not graduating may continue with their academic pattern then complete one co-op at the end of the program.
Q. I am an international student. If I cannot find a co-op job, will my work/study permit be affected?
A. Please contact the International Office for this information.
Q. Can I do my classes online and a work term at the same time?
A. No. Students are either full-time in an academic term or full-time in a work term. You may be able to work part-time but must check with the International Office to determine the terms of your own individual work permit.
Q. My program will be online next term. Will I still have to do COOP-1020 or COOP-1021?
A. Yes. All COOP-1020 and COOP-1021 courses will be delivered online.
Q. What happens if I can’t find a winter co-op job?
A. Fanshawe has approved alternate methods of work-integrated learning such as a special project that would count toward your co-op. Students would be registered as being on a co-op work term. A formalized project has been created. Please contact your co-op consultant for details. Additionally, the consultants continue to seek out work terms for students. Keep checking the Jobsite and communicating with your consultant.
Q. I am a degree student with a mandatory work term. What happens if I cannot find a work term for winter 2021?
