A great way to prepare for your career is to combine classroom learning with hands-on experience in the workplace.
At Seneca, we complement your in-class learning with work experience opportunities to gain practical skills and build valuable connections outside the classroom. Co-ops, work terms and field experience are some of the available opportunities.
Co-ops and work terms are ways for you to gain valuable work experience in your field. These can vary in length; can be paid or unpaid, and optional or mandatory. Program pages online will identify what type of co-op or work term is available for your program. This is a great way to develop a network of industry contacts ahead of graduation while putting your program learning into practice.
Field Experience enables you to relate what you learn in the classroom and labs to what is happening in the workplaces you will be headed to after graduation. Depending on your program, opportunities could include field placement, practicum, internship or an externship. Getting that field experience while you are still in school gives you a head start. You will develop professional contacts within your industry and enhance your resume at the same time.
We are committed to your success and are here to help. From mentoring and tutoring to housing and career services, we offer a range of support
