Northeastern University is a national research university located in Boston, Massachusetts.

It offers a unique model of flexible and personalized education that fuses together the rigorous academic curriculum and practical, real-world-based co-curriculum. Central to this approach is the cooperative education program (co-op) pioneered in 1909.

It integrates periods of classroom study with periods of six-month full-time paid employment in the field of the student’s major. Over 3,000 organizations in the US and 85 countries offer co-op positions to Northeastern students.

International students receive employment authorization that allows them to work on co-op anywhere in the US.
