About Us

The Université de Sherbrooke was the first institution in Quebec to introduce the cooperative system in its programs in 1966. Since then, she has been a true leader in this field, which greatly contributes to her experience, the quality of her services and her reputation.

The cooperative system at the Université de Sherbrooke is an invaluable training method for gradually integrating young university students into an increasingly demanding labour market.  

Each year, nearly 5,000 co-op placements are done in a thousand organizations of all kinds in Quebec, Canada and even elsewhere in the world.

As a result, the Université de Sherbrooke ranks second in Canada, and among the top 10 higher education institutions in North America for the importance of its system.
