How We are Committed to Your Success

The U of R is committed to your academic and professional success. We offer many programs and services that help you to work while you study.

UR Guarantee

The UR Guarantee Program will support you through every step of your university experience to successful employment. UR Guarantee students have an advisor that can help with ALL aspects of University life. Newly admitted or transfer students (with 30 credit hours or less of post-secondary classes): if you complete all elements of the UR Guarantee program and  do not secure career-related employment within six months of graduation, you will be eligible to come back for another year of undergraduate classes free of charge (tuition and course fees). That's the UR Guarantee.

The Co-operative Education & Intership Program

The U of R pioneered the Co-operative (Co-op) Education Work Experience Program in Western Canada. The Co-op Program enables you to gain valuable experience-based learning while pursuing almost any undergraduate degree. Co-op Programs are now available in nearly 50 areas of study and helped our students earn more than $10 million in 2019.

Learn while you earn. Co-op students earn up to 13,000 per four-month placement: as much as $48,000 to help pay for their education. Participating students alternate between work and study semesters for the last three years

of their program.

Explore your career options. See what it is like to work in a specific field and meet future employers.

Develop a network of contacts in your field. Most Co-op students have permanent job offers from their employers prior to graduation.

Increase your earning potential. The U of R makes more Co-operative education and internship placements than all Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions combined.

Co-op Programs are offered in: Liberal Arts, Business Administration, Engineering, and Science (over 50 programs at U of R).

Career Employment

Over the last 10 years Saskatchewan’s economy has boomed and continues to be the fastest-growing province in Canada. Saskatchewan has prospered while other provinces have struggled, thanks to innovative and supportive economic development plans and an abundance of natural resources in the region.

Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada and a strong and diverse economy that creates excellent job opportunities for skilled workers in many fields of expertise.

Immigration

Saskatchewan has an Immigration Nomination Program that is faster than the national program and it is open to University of Regina graduates. All students who work in Saskatchewan after they graduate from the University of Regina are eligible for the $20,000 Tax Graduate Retention Program.
