Professional Experience (PREX)
Professional Experience is for Chemistry, Biochemistry, Computation Arts and Design, Economics, Journalism and Physics students.
Our alternative options function like our regular Co-op programs with two main exceptions:
- They allow more flexibility with 1 work term instead of 3
- They have a different application process
Like Co-op, these work terms will give you a competitive edge when you join the workforce. As a student you will:
- Enjoy the same benefits
- Have access to the same services
- Apply for jobs the same way and work for the same employers
A Professional Experience (PREX) option is available in following undergraduate programs in the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Faculty of Arts and Science:
Work terms are paid, full-time internships related to your field of study. They last 12 to 17 weeks and take place during the Summer (some exception may apply).
The PREX option is based on the employer demand. Depending on the job market, some internships could be done at a different time.
