Many employers look for real world work experience when hiring new graduates and this is where George Brown can give you a competitive edge in the job market. Most of our programs have a field education component, which means you have a valuable opportunity to work and learn with industry partners that may become your future employer.
Early Childhood Development students work alongside childcare experts in one of nine of the College’s own daycare centres. Many of our Hospitality students do their externships in global hotel chains located just blocks from the College.
Co-Operative Education (Co-Op) is an important component of many of the programs in our Centre for Business, where students spend at least one full-time, four-month paid or unpaid work term in a job related to their field of study. For more information, visit the Co-Operative Education page.
Co-ops, externships, internships, field education and practicums – all of these ultimately mean one thing: gaining valuable work experience as part of your program.
International students who are undertaking any kind of field education (co-op, externship, practicum, clinical, etc.), regardless of length, must have a valid co-op work permit. You can submit this application at the same time as your study permit application. For more information, please visit CIC’s website at: cic.gc.ca/english/study/work.asp
