International Placements

International Practicum Placement (IPP)

Each year, students in the Bachelor of Education (BEd) program can apply for the opportunity to participate to complete a teaching placement in an international location, in addition to practicum completed in an Ontario school.

  • These teaching placements take place for the entire month of May
  • Placements are to schools in Kenya or Nicaragua
  • Applications to participate in this opportunity are released in the fall – usually in October. Contact the Practicum Office for details!

Participation can count towards the International Specialization.

Due to the impact of covid-19 and the uncertainty of travel for Summer 2022, the Faculty of Education is putting a hold on planning for the International Practicum Placement (IPP) in Summer 2022. We are hopeful that we will be able to resume this wonderful learning opportunity in Summer 2023. Further information will be provided when it is available.

Summer Internships - International

York University students may be eligible to complete a summer internship through York International. Apply directly in order to participate!

Participation can count towards the International Specialization.

There may be funding available to help students to offset the cost of participating in international opportunities!
