Field placement

Field placement is a required component in many post-secondary programs and provides students with supervised experience in the field while they are still engaged in academic studies. Some academic programs offer practicum or co-op opportunities.

Employers interested in hosting a field placement student may use this directory to find the appropriate referral. Field placements vary in duration depending on the academic requirements of each program.
