Programs with WIL Experiences

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a planned, approved and evaluated work-based experience that comes in many forms including clinical placements, co-ops, field placements, and more. To find out which programs offer WIL experiences, see the list below.

  • For employers, hiring students brings a new and fresh perspective. These experiences may lead to the hiring of future employees.
  • For students, WIL experiences are an amazing opportunity to practice what you have learned in class and apply it in the workplace, while introducing yourself to prospective future employers.

If there is a program you are interested in that is not listed below, or if you have any questions, you can contact wil@nait.ca for more information. International students require a Co-op Work Permit in order to participate in WIL experiences. See the list below and if the program requires a work permit, please reach out to  nait.ca/help  under the “Immigration” category if you have more questions about permits.
