The York University Internship Program provides students in specific programs with the opportunity to integrate their classroom learning with hands-on, paid, work experiences related to their field of study. While on work term(s), internship students apply their classroom learning in a work environment, explore potential career options, and build relationships with colleagues and employers. Internship students will begin their work term(s) after their third year of classroom study and can take part in 4, 8, 12, or 16 months of work before returning to school to complete their studies.
The Faculty of Science’s Experiential Education (EE) office’s goal is, amongst other things, to continuously expand Co-op and Internship opportunities for science students. Please take advantage of the help we can provide.
