Congratulations on reaching this important milestone in your professional development and embarking on the journey to complete the Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) degree at Yorkville University. To fulfill the requirements for the MACP program, all students must complete an onsite counselling practicum, which will occur at the end of the program after completion of all required coursework.
Although the practicum begins after the completion of coursework, it is very important that students start thinking about their practicum experience early in the academic program. To help with this process, we have developed this Portal which will provide you with the information needed to become familiar with the practicum.
Applications submitted past the deadline will not be reviewed. It is very important that you and your supervisor are aware of the application process and deadlines for submitting all documentation.
Please watch this video prior to attending the “Living the Practicum Life” webinar.
Yorkville University is committed to providing an inclusive learning environment for students facing barriers to participation due to protected human rights grounds. This includes students with permanent, persistent, or prolonged disabilities, such as medical conditions, learning disabilities, ADHD/ADD, and mental health illnesses, amongst others.
The Accessibility and Academic Accommodations Office is pleased to announce that, in collaboration with Field Training, students can now access academic accommodations for their practicum. In addition to existing academic accommodation for coursework, students can access academic accommodations when facing barriers due to protected human rights grounds with pre-practicum requirements and recommendations for on-site accommodations to enable participation.
Like all academic accommodations, pre-practicum procedural and onsite recommendations will be provided when appropriate, based on functional limitations due to the protected grounds and supported by objective documentation.
To register for academic accommodations, follow the following steps:
2) Students already registered with the Accessibility office can contact their Accessibility Specialist directly or send a general email to [email protected]
