George Brown announces virtual education-abroad WIL pilot project

December 15, 2020
George Brown College has announced a pilot project that will enable students to participate in international work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities through virtual placements. Through the program, companies in Spain, Portugal, China, Japan, Singapore, and Sweden will host students for virtual WIL placements. Students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in education-abroad programs will be given priority access to the program. “This pilot program will engage students who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to gain international experience, while providing the data we need to make international WIL more accessible to all,” said Dario Guescini, Director, Work-Integrated Learning, Experiential Education and Global Mobility at George Brown.
