The Division of Co-operative Education is responsible for combining classroom education with practical work experience. The Division links the paid work terms the students experience with their chosen program of studies. A number of Memorial University of Newfoundland's co-op programs are accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education, the national body and accrediting agency for co-operative education in Canada. The accredited institution affirms that: (1) each work situation is developed and/or approved by the co-operative educational institution as a suitable learning situation; (2) the co-operative student is engaged in productive full time work rather than merely observing; (3) the co-operative student receives remuneration for the work performed; (4) the co-operative student's progress on the job is monitored by the co-operative educational institution; (5) the co-operative student's performance on the job is supervised and evaluated by the student's co-operative employer; and (6) the total co-operative work experience is at least thirty percent of the time spent in academic study. Co-operative education programs at this University are offered in a variety of degree programs organized through a centralized division. The goal of the Division of Co-operative Education is to fuse academic knowledge with practical experience, creating highly qualified and knowledgeable professionals prepared to meet the demands of today's workforce.
