Practicums are built into our Health Services, Adventure Tourism Business Operations, Child, Youth & Family Studies, Tourism Management, Recreation Management and Hairstylist programs. The length of and number of practicums vary by program. Refer to your program page for more information on program specific practicums.

Practicum and Work Placements

Some programs have a mandatory practicum requirement which must be completed to graduate.

Students may be allowed to use a relevant, paid position (Work Placement) to fulfill the practicum requirement; however, prior approval must be obtained from the instructor or program coordinator based on individual evaluation of the position.

You may be wondering:

How do I find a practicum or work placement?

What happens during my practicum or work placement?

How do I receive credit for my work placement?
