iBA International Internship Option

Students who are admitted to the International Bachelor of Arts program must complete the international experience requirement: either university-level study (INTL 399L) or an approved international internship (INTL 399W).

The co-operative education office for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is responsible for administering the International Internship Option (IIO). 

The IIO provides a structured work-integrated educational experience that supports the development of intercultural competencies and global citizenship. The internship should build on a student’s prior coursework, education, employment and personal experiences to allow the student to experience workplace culture in a location outside of Canada.

A small number of full-time iBA students may be admitted to the IIO each year (Fall or Winter semesters only). A student must apply to Co-operative Education at least eight months before commencing work for the internship. 

Application Deadlines:

  • January 15 (or next business day) for fall internships
  • May 15 (or next business day) for winter internships
