Why Choose Co-op




"One of the best decisions I made at Ryerson was joining co-op. I enjoyed benefits that I wouldn't have had access to if I wasn't part of this group. My grades improved, my confidence grew, I gained industry contacts and even managed to secure a full time job before graduation. Whenever students ask me if they should do co-op? My response is why not! I did it and I never regretted it!"

It really teaches you to be disciplined, it teaches you to be organized; that translates throughout your entire academic life here at Ryerson. You'll notice that you're being more punctual, you'll notice that your grades are going up, you'll notice that co-op is an entire revolution to your academic life here."
