International internship information

The Internship course is open to international students currently enrolled in an approved Faculty of Business and Information Technology program and have met the cumulative GPA of 2.3 criteria.

Our university offers real-life experience through opportunities with employers, domestically and abroad. Posted internship opportunities are on the Career Centre portal, accessed through Student Life. On this site, you have the opportunity to take advantage of various career services such as resume, cover letter and interview preparation, which may benefit you if you are unfamiliar with Canadian hiring and work processes.

You also have the option of obtaining an internship opportunity of your choosing. However, it is mandatory that the program co-ordinator approve the placement prior to acceptance of the job.

To see internship postings and to take advantage of career services provided, please access the Career Centre Portal.

The Approval Process

Program co-ordinator approval is required for self-obtained internship opportunities. You should submit your request by email or in-person to the program co-ordinator and allow a minimum of four weeks before the intended start time for proper assessment and review of the internship. If the opportunity is an international work placement, a six to eight week time frame is required for approval to allow for any compliance issues.

If you have issues, concerns, or are seeking further clarification on process or requirements, contact the program co-ordinator

Student Exchange

Information for international and domestic students regarding student exchange, or an international student working within Canada, is available on the International Student site.
