Work experience is recognized and in high demand by employers. The Work-Study Program (WSP) is an educational model that allows you to undertake two paid internships during your studies to gain work experience related to your field of study. The Work-Study Program is recognized by the ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de la Science (MESRS). Internship last between 8 and 16 weeks and are completed during the summer months. Internships can take place in Quebec, Canada, or abroad.


  • WSP allows you to become more familiar with the professional field that you are aiming to work in.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to put into practice, in a professional environment, the theoretical skills acquired through your courses.
  • You will have 6 to 8 months of paid work experience in your field, before even obtaining your diploma.
  • Your Work-Study Program experience will be noted on your transcript as well as your diploma.
  • As a graduate, the mention of WSP will be a very valuable asset that will provide you with greater chances of getting a job in your field.
