Canadian Work Opportunities
At present, the Canadian government allows the following work options for international students:
Co-operative Education (Co-op)
Co-op means paid work experience, and many of our programs deliver four to eight months of paid work experience. In practice, our 98% work term placement rate means Niagara is one of Canada's leaders in Co-op education.
Internship and Practicum
Many of our programs contain internship and practicum positions. These short-term, program-related openings will allow you to develop specific skills within professional work settings.
On-Campus and Off-Campus Work
You will be able to work on-campus while you are studying. After completing six months of study, you will be entitled to apply for an off-campus work visa which allows you to work 20 hours during the school year and full-time during the vacations.
Upon completion of your program, you will be able to work in Canada up to three years. The abilities you develop during these years will give you the opportunity to combine Canadian work experience with your education helping you launch your career and turning you into a global player.
