Hi guys,

I am about to apply for the FT, but would there be any internship opportunities for FT students? It looks like the univrrsity is much more focused on coop students. I am not sure how I may secure a job without any internship opportunities.

Hey!
Yeah. DeGroote's flagship programme is their Co-op programme. I applied for the full time as the Co-op does not accept students with more than 5 years experience. If your years of experience is less than 5, you can apply to the Co-op. The full time programme does provide internship opportunity.
Yes. you are right. During placements, Canadian companies give highest importance to Canadian education and Canadian work experience. An internship will definitely help.

PrasanthVK,

Thank you for the input. Do you know how good their internship program is? I am sure that a lot of co-op students get almost guaranteed placements for 3 terms, but I've read from the forum that the university does not really provide much support for FT students, and it might be possible to graduate without any experiences. As my background is not in business and as I am not from Ontario, getting an experience before graduation is one of the most important factors I am considering now. My experience is 4 years (5 years with internship for my undergrad), so I guess I am really in between the two options.
Do you know what the university said about the summer internship or any internship opportunities for FT students?

Hey!
You are right. Their flagship programme is the co-op and they give the most attention to that. Having said that, getting an internship is basically the student's responsibility in any university. There will a placement cell and it is up to you to secure an internship for yourself. Are you from Canada? If you have prior work experience in Canada, then you do not need an internship as much as say, someone like me. Furthermore, keep in mind that the class profile of DeGroote University will be on the younger side. Average student age is 26 and average work experience around 3 years.
In my case, I got admission from University of Alberta. So I have selected that.

All the best!
