WIL Application Requirements

Most of BCIT’s full time programs have a Work Integrated Learning component. Please check your program’s pages to see what types of experiences are available for your program. Some have mandatory requirements (such as a co-op, Industry project or internship), others have an optional or selective process to participate in the co-op program.

Learn and earn

Work placements allow students to apply their classroom knowledge and develop new skills in a professional setting. Students can choose to work in a variety of fields within their program area. Many work placements are also paid which helps students with their educational costs.
