Competitive and/or Outside of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Practicum

Practicum Opportunities Available September 2018 – April 2019

From time to time the Practicum Office learns of opportunities which may be of interest to you that fall outside of the established matching schedule and/ or are outside of the GTA.  Competitions cannot be guaranteed as FIFSW students will be interviewing with students from other academic institutions for a limited number of spaces.

As with other courses at FIFSW, the practicum is typically a Toronto-based course. From time to time, practicums outside of Toronto are offered.

There are currently no competitive practicums available.
