Co-op Work Term/Fieldwork

Students are required to complete a 15-week co-operative work term prior to graduation. The work term provides them with the opportunity to apply classroom studies to an actual work situation, gain extensive practical, on-the-job training, and potentially earn a salary while doing so. Tuition fees are levied for the co-op work term. Although assistance is provided by the coordinators, it is the students’ responsibility to secure a co-op work term. Students have the option of completing the co-op work term at the end of semester 4 or 5 as long as they meet academic requirements.

Students must also complete approximately 90 hours of volunteer fieldwork as a requirement of courses in first, second, and third year. Placement opportunities may include working with community sports organizations, individuals within specific population groups, personal training clients and with Active Sudbury's ongoing physical literacy project.
