Western Continuing Studies is proud to partner with organizations in our local community and around the world for the practicum component of our post-degree diploma programs. Post-degree diploma students have completed an undergraduate degree and have chosen to enroll in a one-year post-degree diploma program to develop skills and knowledge in relation to a specific industry. In addition to completing several required courses, students complete mandatory work placements. It is the culmination of their university experience and an exciting opportunity to apply everything they have learned.
