Below, you'll find current course-based experiential learning opportunities. Check back regularly to see what's new.

Capstone iconTypically completed in your last semester, Capstone courses serve as the culminating learning experience in a degree program. All Capilano University students enrolled in baccalaureate degrees have the opportunity to complete a capstone course in fulfilment of their Cap Core Professional Practice requirement.

Co ops iconA co-op consists of alternating academic terms and paid work terms. Internships involve several co-op work terms back to back. In both models, work terms provide experience in a workplace setting related to your field of study. Learn more about the Bachelor of Tourism Management, Tourism Management Co-operative Education diploma and Outdoor Recreation Management diploma.

Field Schools iconField schools are credit or non-credit courses offered off campus locally or internationally. To learn more about our international field schools, contact the Centre for International Experience.

Practicums iconPracticums are supervised professional work experiences in fields of study that require practice-based work experience for professional certification. Learn more about programs with practicums.

Study Abroad iconInternationalize your education with a full-term exchange at one of our 20 partner institutions around the world—for the same tuition fee you normally pay at CapU. Students typically apply in their second year to go abroad in their third year.

WIL iconWork-integrated learning, or practical learning, is where students work with clients or partners on industry projects. Partners can include municipalities, non-profits, industry, business or business associations.

Students get work experience, and our partners get work completed by a range of diverse and creative students.

The work can include course-based projects, arranged by instructors or with CityStudio North Vancouver, GrowthHub, a unique work-integrated learning program that challenges students to help local businesses or Riipen, a platform that connects students with companies to work on projects for course credit.
