DIVERSE CULTURE Over the past 100 years,
more than 13 million immigrants have come to

core, offering students a unique campus life
experience. It’s close to shops, cafés, great walking
and biking trails, and a diverse arts and entertainment
scene. With a population of just over 96,000,
Brantford is home to consumer goods giants - Ferrero
Canada and SC Johnson Canada. Brantford is a city
where sporting events and recreational activities are
an integral part of community life – and it’s only one
hour southwest of Toronto.

Our Waterloo campus is located in the thriving,
culturally diverse community of Kitchener-Waterloo
(K-W). Located just 100 kilometres west of Toronto,
this city offers plenty of hiking trails, golf courses,
skating rinks, soccer fields and even a ski hill. Home to
many leaders in technology including BlackBerry™,
Desire2Learn and Google’s Canadian headquarters, K-W
caters to a student population, which represents about a
third of our 350,000 people. K-W is small enough to be
safe and easy to get around, yet big enough to provide
great restaurants, shopping and entertainment.

Meal plans are required for residence students at the Brantford campus at a cost of $400 Pakistan
per term (fall & winter). Even though all of the residences are apartment-style, which means
you’ll have a kitchen in the apartment to cook all of your meals, the meal plan will come in
handy for buying groceries at FreshCo, a local grocery store, just a short five minute walk
from campus. You can also use your meal plan at Williams Fresh Cafe, Subway and Golden
Grounds, just to name a few locations.

The Co-op Advantage
Co-op is a paid work placement opportunity that provides you with the chance to develop
valuable contacts, gain self-confidence and create opportunities for employment after
graduation. Honours students in arts, science, economics* and business at the Waterloo
campus may apply to our co-op program. Students in double degree programs who meet
progression requirements for the second year of their program are automatically eligible to
enrol in co-op, as are students in the Bachelor of Business Technology Management (BBTM)
program at the Brantford campus. Students in double degree programs offered between
Laurier and the University of Waterloo are required to participate in co-op.
*Co-op is not available in the Applied Economics program.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
•You apply to co-op at the end of first-year. If your program offers automatic admission to
co-op and you have met the progression requirements for second-year, you would enrol at
this time as well.
•If you meet the grade requirements, you will be invited to an admission interview. Soon
thereafter, you will find out if you are accepted into the co-op program.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
The Department of Co-operative Education posts jobs and arranges interviews for you. Staff
members will also help you fine-tune your resumé and cover letter and practice interview skills.

Co-op gave me the opportunity to get an
all-around university student experience:
excel academically, be involved in the Laurier
community, and have work experience to
complement my degree. I’ve always known I
was interested in the field of Marketing but I
never really had an opportunity to work in the
field. Co-op gives you the chance to work in
different areas so that you can figure out
what you may, or may not like. In my first
co-op term, I’m working in a small start-up
company called ChangeIt. Working for a startup has allowed me to get an experience in
marketing but it has also exposed me to
different sectors of the business, such as
charity engagement and customer support.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
YEAR: 4
I wanted to be a part of Laurier because the
university not only has a very good academic
reputation, but students are also given an
incredible number of opportunities to be an
active part of a thriving and diverse student
society. After being on campus for a few
days and seeing how passionate everyone
was with community involvement, I also
wanted to participate. I co-founded and still
help in facilitating The Laurier Studio
Experience (LSE), where we help young
artists record and promote their music.

Before coming to Laurier’s Waterloo campus,
I spent six months studying in the LEAF
(ESL) Program at the Brantford campus.
Personally, I believe the short period of
English training also better prepared me for
my university experience by improving my
academic abilities.
