Work Integrated Learning - Gain experience while you study

Work Integrated Learning

Many RRU programs offer work integrated learning opportunities as academic courses of the program. Work integrated learning is a mode of learning that allows students to gain applied experience while enrolled in an academic course, which provides learners the opportunity to apply classroom skills in the workplace and bring workplace skills back to the classroom.

The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) team provides support to students whose programs have either an internship or practicum as an academic component of their program.

WIL Office Services

The WIL office provides a number of services for students who have either an internship or practicum as an academic course within their program. The WIL office and the Program Offices work together to explore the parameters of support for each program, which include:

  • A structured preparatory Internship Career Management pre-requisite course;
  • On-demand workshops on topics such as resume development, professional networking, interviews, social media/digital networking, and career development;
  • One-on-one career advising and vocational coaching sessions;
  • Employer connection; and
  • Opportunity development.

Students are expected to be prepared and pro-active with their employer/host outreach. The WIL office provides support and resources to assist students throughout their unique journeys and take advantage of the different resources available to them:

CareerRoads

CareerRoads is more than a job bank, it is a database of employers who are engaged with RRU and understand the University’s unique education platform. It is a resource for students to access during a search for in-class projects, practicum or internship hosts or during a career search. All work integrated learning opportunities, strategic volunteer positions, and career opportunities are posted to CareerRoads.
