  • Visit the ISA's Undergraduate Programs page for more information on BEd and BSc (Kinesiology) programs.
  • International Students in Bachelor of Education programs - In addition to the CAQ and Study Permit, International students in Bachelor of Education programs must obtain a Co-op/Internship Work Permit issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as a requirement for the mandatory Field Experiences. Consult the Student Teaching webpage for instructions and International Student Services for more information about the permit application.  The Internships & Student Affairs Office will provide you with the letter that is required from your institution as part of the application process. Email your request using your McGill email address and be sure to provide your McGill ID number.  Note that this permit is not the same as the off-campus work permit included with your study permit.

    It is important to begin the process of obtaining the Co-Op Internship Work Permit as soon as you accept the offer of admission, as it requires a medical exam, and in the past has taken up to 3 months for CIC to process the application.
