As part of your international practicum placement, you will need to submit a one-page paper with your observations on differences and similarities between the BC school system and the school system of your international placement.
International Education Practicum
To be eligible to do an international education practicum, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be a student in good standing in the Faculty of Education
- Have passed all BEd courses and practicums proceeding the international practicum
- Have a satisfactory academic record for studies immediately preceding the BEd
- Have strong oral and written English or French (if applying to a France language option) skills
Practicum Placement Opportunities
For all of these opportunities, the university or institution arranges placements for UBC teacher candidates. Local teachers apply to have a practicum student and in most cases placements will correspond with your specialization.
