International Teaching Placement Opportunities

Note: Due to the covid-19 pandemic, international placements cannot be offered in 2020/2021, but will reopen in 2022 and be available to second-year students in the Bachelor of Education program. Students can apply in Fall 2021 for international placement opportunities to take place in March/April 2022. This website will be updated in 2021 with international placement offerings and the application form for the international placement offerings.

The following information applies to previous international placement offerings.

We are pleased to offer five international placement locations for a 5-week placement. See the following links for information on partnerships and fact sheets on travel in each country:
