What is a Practicum?
A practicum is a college or university course, often in a specialized field of study, that is designed to give students supervised practical application of a previously or concurrently studied theory.
Students will engage in a practicum, which will culminate classroom theory into practical real world application. Students should expect a high calibre practicum experience, gaining valuable insight into the organization, while demonstrating acquired hands on knowledge in a relevant industry role.
Students will have support from the Practicum Coordinator in securing a suitable practicum placement of choice. Practicum opportunities have been pre-established through partnerships with recognized organizations in the London and surrounding area, across Canada and beyond.
It is our expectation that students achieve the best possible practicum experience available.
Please note: Depending on your geographic location and the availability of practicum sites, you may be required to travel and/or relocate in order to complete the practical portions of the Diploma requirements.
