BCIT New Media Design and Web Development Practicum Program

BCIT New Media Design and Web Development students in their final term of study are available to work five days a week in your organization for a three week period. The students have completed the majority of their classroom requirements and have job ready skills to make an impact within your organization and are eager to sink their teeth into real work. This program offers two practicum opportunities in March and September.

The practicum program provides students with exposure to the new media industry and gives them valuable work experience. At the same time, you receive a recently trained student to work on projects and complete various tasks within your organization. It is a perfect way to try out a potential new entry-level employee with no risk. A win/win for both parties.

Securing a practicum student is not guaranteed.
