Practicum placement in FABLE

Am I guaranteed that someone will find me a practicum placement?

The Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education have established agreements with a significant number of host companies and while every effort is made to place as many students as possible it is not a guarantee that you will be able to undertake a practicum unit.

There are a number of factors that affect our ability to place students, for example:

  • You may have a particular areas of interest or industry that is very specific however we may not be able to match you with a host company that is willing to take on a student intern OR
  • a host company will have ONE placement available and a number of students will interview for the role

Students are always advised to have a ‘back up’ unit for the teaching period that they wish to take the practicum just in case they do not get a placement in that round.
