The vast majority of students participating in an internship program in Vancouver, choose to find their own accommodation. However, if you do need temporary accommodation during your internship, we have several hostel and student hotel accommodation options for you, starting at $800 per month.

If you are accepted into the program, you will be asked to pay a deposit of $300 to confirm your enrolment. Once your internship interview is arranged, your remaining fees become due. Payment can be made online by Pay Pal, credit card or Interac email transfer, or through the mail, by cheque.
To enroll in the Student Internship program for Fall 2010, please complete the application form here. After we have received your application form, a Vancouver Internships staff member will evaluate it and determine if you meet all basic requirements. If you meet requirements, we will contact you to schedule a telephone consultation. During this consultation, we will discuss your internship objectives, and assess your 'placeability' and answer any questions you may have.
If you are accepted into the program, you will be sent an internship offer letter, describing what internship options are open to you, and listing your program structure (number of weeks you want to intern, and your desired start date). After receiving this and paying your deposit, you will be officially enrolled and will begin resume counseling and your placement process.
