“I recommend that every student should take an internship course because it grants experience in the workplace of your medium while earning credits, as well as making connections with people in the field of work.  Being an intern has honestly been a positive experience for me, and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity.”

Community Service Learning

Community Service Learning (CSL) is a unique opportunity for students, faculty and community based organizations to work together.  Students can pursue their own CSL experience in partnership with a community organization once it has been reviewed by NSCAD.  Volunteering and service to the community can be tailored to a student’s particular area of study, creating an individualized experiential learning opportunity.


Undergraduate Student Exchange

Students have the opportunity to engage in studies away from the university in two ways. Independent Off-Campus Study allows students to devise individual plans of study within Canada or abroad while registered for courses listed in the university calendar.  Our Exchange Study allows students to continue study at one of a number of institutions around the world. Currently this include more than 70 different institutions in 13 countries.
