    Yes. Students must complete 450 hours of field experience.

  4. Does the college guarantee a field experience to each student enrolled in the program?

    George Brown College assists students to secure a field experience position, but the college makes no guarantee. It is up to each student to do everything possible to secure an approved field placement, either through a position the college advertises or through their own independent job search. Securing a position within the industry is a competitive process and the final decision is made by the employer.

    It is the expectation that the student will complete their field  experience in the third semester. Please see co-ordinator for more information. 

  7. What educational opportunities are available upon completion of this program?

    Graduates of this program are required to apply to graduate schools themselves as universities have unique admission requirements.
