Experiential Learning at UWindsor

Experiential learning (EL) at the University of Windsor refers to practical, hands-on activities combined with critical reflection that give you rich and deep learning experiences. EL is your bridge between classroom theory and the world beyond.

We can help you find and make the most of your course-based and co-curricular EL opportunities in the classroom, in work-place settings, in the community, or in virtual or simulated settings.

Co-operative Education & Workplace Partnerships


Co-op placements and full-time internships are coordinated through the office of Cooperative Education and Workplace Partnerships

Career Development & Experiential Learning

The office of Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) can help you find a job, gain work experience, or apply for professional school or post-graduate programs through support with resume and CV writinginterview skills, and career planning. CDEL also coordinates our Ignite Work Study, VIP-Community Service Learning, and Job Shadow Experience programs.


Discover the possibilities and get started! 

To help you navigate the many options and opportunities, including hands-on experiential courses and valuable co-curricular activities, the University of Windsor has created an Experience Map tailored to your field(s) of study. Find the Experience Map that best suits you to begin.

Your Experience Map is your starting place but there are many more opportunities than can be included in one document. Make a point of looking for courses with experiential learning and exploring co-curricular activities to make the most of your UWindsor experience!
