    Co-op Program VS Internship

    Co-op Program


    Co-op programs mostly comprise full-time jobs.

    Internships can either be part-time or full-time.

    Students are paid full-time salaries under the Co-op program.

    Internships can either be unpaid or paid.

    Under Co-op, a student works for a fixed time of bond.

    Internships allow students to work flexibly.

    Under Co-op program jobs, students get an extensive amount of work experience.

    Internships are usually for 2-3 months, so the work experience is less.


    A Co-op program will prepare students for their specialization by giving them hands-on experience in that field. Additionally, this form of education helps international students with future career options.
