Can any student enrolled in an OISE program apply for the internship?

The UTM OISE Higher Education Internship is a unique opportunity exclusively for students enrolled in a Master’s level Higher Education program. However, students from other OISE masters programs will be considered, so long as they meet the course eligibility requirements. To ensure you are academically eligible to apply, please contact Professor David Kim. Only students who are academically eligible to take LHA5812HF as an elective will be able to apply.

 

I am an international student. Can I apply?

International students are welcome – and encouraged – to apply. International students wishing to apply for the internship must have a valid study permit, be enrolled full-time in one of the eligible Master’s level Higher Education programs and have a Canadian social insurance number (SIN). Please visit the International Education Centre for more details about the conditions and limitations to work off campus. Please contact Professor David Kim to determine your academic eligibility for course LHA5812HF.

 

I am a part-time student. Can I apply?

Part time students enrolled in a Master’s level Higher Education program may apply but must be able to fulfil the on-campus work component of the internship. We understand that many part-time students have full-time jobs, so may not be able to commit to this. If you have specific questions, or would like to talk about your situation, please contact us at sasinternship.utm@utoronto.ca

 


I am interested in completing more than one internship. Is that possible?

The LHA5812HF course is a 0.5 credit elective, two-semester course that allows for one internship placement. A second internship may be completed under the LHA5813HF course code - again, allowing for 0.5 credits over two semesters.

 

When can I apply for the internship?

Applications for the summer internships will open in August 2019.

 

How do I apply for an internship position?

All of the application instructions can be found here. All applications are submitted through the Career Learning Network.

 

Can I complete my internship with a student affairs and services department on the St. George campus?

The UTM OISE Higher Education Internship is currently a partnership between the University of Toronto Mississauga and OISE, so all internships are housed within a student affairs and services department at the Mississauga campus. 

 

How do I register for the internship course?

If you receive and accept an offer for an internship placement, you will receive information on how to register for the LHA5812HF course. Please note that internship offers are made after course selection begins, so you may wish to register for another course to ensure enrolment in another elective of your choice. If you do receive and accept an offer for an internship, you will be able to drop the course that you had registered for and add the internship course.
