McMaster University has partnered with AuraData, Canada’s online education verification system for the purposes of verifying Undergraduate and Graduate degree completion status of McMaster University graduates for employers and other external parties. For degree verification please visit the AuraData website. Please note: AuraData verifies Doctor of Medicine degrees but does not verify Internships, Residency, or Post Doctoral Fellowships in the field of Medicine. These must be verified through the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine. AuraData verification is not available for post graduate and undergraduate certificates.
If you require a student to provide a letter of enrolment, they may request/produce a letter through the Mosaic Student Centre. This is only available the week after a convocation ceremony.
Work-integrated learning is a form of curricular experiential education that formally integrates a student’s academic studies with quality experiences within a workplace or practice setting. WIL experiences include an engaged partnership of at least: an academic institution, a host organization, and a student.
As part of our curriculum, co-op and internship opportunities must meet the curricular requirements set forward by each academic program. These requirements will vary by program. Each co-op and internship opportunity will be reviewed to determine whether it meets the programs requirements.
Simply email your job posting to firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will review to determine program alignment. We will follow up with you as necessary should additional information be required. All co-op and internship opportunities must be paid at a rate comparable to industry standards or in accordance with provincial/territorial minimums.
Special note for new employer partners – A discovery call with all employers posting with us for the first time will be scheduled. In these calls, we will gather additional information about your organization, your recruitment needs, as well as share information on our programs, our process, candidate pool and funding options.
