Humber students have the opportunity to complete program work placements in Canada or abroad. In today’s competitive job market, having global work experience under your belt is one of the very best things you can do for your prospective career. But interning abroad is about much more than work experience. You’ll be challenged to adapt both personally and professionally, and the payoff will be enormous. By leaving the comforts of home to immerse yourself in an entirely new culture, you’ll be pushing the boundaries of what you are capable of and gain an invaluable global perspective.
As a student learning in and exploring another country, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance many skills, including self-confidence, decision-making, building new networks, and communicating in different environments. Arguably, the travel and life experience acquired through working abroad is even more important than the professional experience.
