Important Note for Fall 2021

Students are recommended to complete all their internships remotely for the Winter 2021 semester. If an internship requires even occasional in-person work, students must apply for an exemption from the Associate Dean of The Creative School, and this exception may be granted on a case-by-case basis. 

In-person work will be indicated on the FITS application, and approval will be pending. Once students have indicated placement has in-person components, they are to email brittany.paty@ryerson.ca to begin the process of an exception. Until the exception has been granted, students are not to complete and in-person work at their internship. Please inform your employer of this as soon as possible.

About Internships

Internships should involve educational experiences in the workplace that equip the student with technical and interpersonal skills required to work effectively in both the public and private sectors. After the completion of the internship, students will be able to reflect positively on their experience taking away key transferable skills required in the current Canadian and global labour market(s).
