Application for Placement

Field placement – a student led process

The UVic School of Social Work believes that field education placements are pivotal to student learning and therefore acknowledge the student as leader in the field education process.

Upon submission of your application, you will be assigned a practicum coordinator who will provide you with further information about the process to follow to secure a placement. We would ask students not to contact agencies directly unless directed to do so by their coordinator. We only contact students through their UVic email address.

Although we make every effort to assist you to secure a field placement in the term and social work area you desire, placements are not guaranteed. Field placements are not intended to lead to employment. For career planning please contact the UVic Career Counseling Centre or their website to explore career opportunities.
