Work-Integrated Learning

Humber programs offer unique work-integrated learning opportunities to prepare students for their future careers. Students apply what they’ve learned in class to real-world environments through a wide range of academic, community and industry partnerships and opportunities. This helps to bridge the gap between studies and career.

These work-integrated and experiential learning opportunities may include field experience, professional practicums, co-operative education work terms, internships, applied research projects or community service learning. You may work with industry partners to help solve real-world problems or work with our Centre for Entrepreneurship to explore how to start your own business.

Visit individual program pages to learn more about specific opportunities.

The Student Experience

Watch how Humber incorporates work-integrated, practical learning into its programs.

Work placements

Humber is focused on preparing students for future career success with an education that includes hands-on and experiential learning. The term “work placement” can refer to co-op placements, internships or field experience depending on the program. 

Humber offers several kinds of work placements:

Co-operative Education

A co-op placement alternates academic, in-class learning and paid work terms. Students get to engage in work related to their field of study, which becomes increasingly more complex as they build the necessary skills. Your progress is monitored by the college.

Field Experience

This includes other work-integrated learning experiences that be intensive short-term or long-term experiences in a relevant field to your studies. The experience can be paid or unpaid and students are required to complete a defined number of hours linked to their program.

Professional Practicum

This work is overseen by an experienced registered or licensed professional in a discipline that requires placement hours and experience to attain certification. These work placements are generally unpaid, but integral to the program. Hours may be completed in blocks or throughout the academic year.

Internship

Internships can be paid or unpaid and typically take place in the middle or at the end of a program.
