Student for a Day

NAIT programs are split into four Schools – JR Shaw School of Business, School of Applied Sciences and Technology, School of Health and Life Sciences, and School of Skilled Trades – and this is how our Student for a Day visits are booked. If you’re not sure which School your program of interest is from, please reference SFAD Programs by School (PDF).

Please note: Student for a Day visits vary by School and not all visits will include hands-on activities and program-specific tours. More information on what is included in visits can be found below and questions can be directed to sfad@nait.ca.

If you are interested in programs from different Schools, you are more than welcome to attend multiple days.
