Work Integrated Learning

Work-integrated learning is the experience element of our diploma programs and provides you with real skills and hands-on learning opportunities in your chosen field.

All Post-Degree Diploma programs incorporate workplace integrated learning through the practicum. The practicum is the final credit course in the diploma program. This experiential element helps you gain valuable hands-on experience, improve professionalism, and build your network. Most practicums are 560 hours, except Clinical Trials (400 hours) and Pedorthics (two practicums, 1120 hours).

Practicum Placements

If you could work for any organization, which one would you choose? 

We help every student in our programs secure a practicum placement. As part of your program, we ask you to research and provide our WIL team with your top three potential organizations where you would like to complete your practicum. We'll reach out to these companies to explore potential opportunities in addition to the postings we get for each program. We've placed students locally, across Canada and internationally.

Researching potential employers is a great networking opportunity. The contacts you find may be possible connections for informational interviewing or future job opportunities.
