Practicum costs

Both courses in the selected stream include a practicum component. Practicum placements are negotiated between the student, course instructor, and practicum sites. The practicum site is chosen based on ability to meet student learning needs, and efforts are made to select local placements where possible. Local placement cannot be guaranteed.

Equipment costs

Participation in online courses requires:

  • regular access to high-speed internet
  • a computer with current software (minimum Microsoft Office 2010).

If you do not already have access to the necessary equipment, this may represent an additional cost for you.
