Western's Internship Program

Many programs at Western include the opportunity to pursue an internship and/or co-op experience. Students are encouraged to apply their knowledge and gain work experience in a private, public, or not-for-profit setting related to their degree program and career objectives.

Work terms vary in length; short-term internship/co-op programs can run 10 weeks to 4 months in duration (often during summer term). Long-term internship programs can span 8 to 16 months and take place between a student’s 3rd and 4th years of study. Visit the WIL Directory for more information on program offerings.
