Located in Canada’s capital city, the University of Ottawa is home to one of the top five CO-OP Programs in Canada. The CO-OP program allows for over 2000 students to complete professional internships every year. Since 2012, ALLTRADIS has maintained an excellent partnership with the university, welcoming bilingual translation and interpretation students, and recently, marketing and communication students to Castres, giving them the opportunity to gain international work experience.
The University of Ottawa is the largest bilingual (English-French) University in the world, with the world’s first French immersion undergraduate program, allowing students to complete their bachelor’s degree while having the choice of completing their courses in French or English.
Having almost 35 years of history, the CO-OP Program at the University of Ottawa allows students to apply the theoretical concepts learned in class in a professional work environment. The objective is for students to gain experience in their field of study while also meeting a network of valuable contacts to contribute to the success of their career after graduation. The CO-OP Program also gives students the opportunity to discover which careers are more suitable for them.
With more than 35 000 undergraduate students, only 1 000 students are accepted into the CO-OP Program each year. Students are accepted based on academic merit and have to maintain a certain standard of academic results in order to stay in the progam.
In 2012, ALLTRADIS established a partnership with the CO-OP Progam and has since welcomed both students from the Translation and Interpretation School and the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa. Every semester, ALLTRADIS invites the selected students to complete their CO-OP work term as an intern at their head office in Castres, France, giving them the chance to experience living and working in a charming town in the south of France while providing them with training, mentoring, and support to ensure their professional success.
