BCM Co-op is very attractive for University & College students taking time off from their study looking for short term programs where they can enhance English communication skills and grow as a young professional. We don’t think this is ideal for someone with years of professional experience from abroad but this is definitely attractive for young students and growing very popular in Korea, Japan and some of the Latin American countries. Some of the students study an English language course for about 3 months and then join Sprott Shaw’s 13 weeks academic term before coming to Springboard for 13 weeks of unpaid co-op placement.
The program is too short to offer paid co-op placement. BCM’s co-op term is just 13 weeks. Students can still work part time during their studies and co-op though. For more details on co-op placement for BCM, you can go to Career Service for students.
