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 and in real world environments through a wide range of academic, community and industry partnerships. These work-integrated and experiential learning opportunities may include field placements, practicums, clinical placements, co-operative education work terms, internships, applied research projects, or service learning. Check program pages to learn more about the specific opportunities within each program.

The Learning Process

Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) provides a valuable bridge between a student’s academic program and the real world. For students, the opportunity to participate in WIL (ex. Field placement, professional practice, capstone projects, and applied research) enhances the learning process and better prepares students for the demands of the workplace. Employers benefit from the availability of skilled and well-trained students and graduates to help solve problems and bring new ideas and innovative thinking to the community and field.
