Post-storm update: All NSCAD University campuses are open.

STUDY OR WORK ABROAD

International travel, residencies, and internships are life-changing experiences. They Broaden your horizon, give you a sense of what is possible, connect you to a wider creative community, and challenge you to put what you’ve learned to work. These experience are core to the NSCAD experience.

Life-changing experiences.

To go on exchange to another university is to push yourself in new cultural environments and into the lives of others across the globe. It’s more than going to another university. Students become advocates of the arts, and cultural interpreters, both when they travel and when they return home. Whether it is an internship, design practicum, or working in service to the community, NSCAD students have many opportunities to apply and increase their learning in real-world situations. Closer to home, NSCAD University has partnered with several Nova Scotia communities to offer recent NSCAD graduates a one-year residency in a community-provided studio.

Internships.

Whether it is an internship, design practicum, or working in service to the community, NSCAD students have many opportunities to apply and increase their learning in real-world situations. Students are matched with professionals in their desired field, working locally or internationally. Many partnerships already exist and new ones are added each year.

Here are a few examples of how internships work:

Internship/ Community Service Learning is a studio course that can be undertaken for three credits, six credits and in exceptional circumstances nine credits. 

Research internships are available as a three credit LAS course with a primary focus on research work with an appropriate organization.

NSCAD students may apply for a design practicum as part of their program in their fourth year of study.
