Non-Clinical Student Practicum Opportunities (FULL for 2023)

All non-clinical practicum placements are full for Fall 2023.

All these opportunities are great, but due to the current situation, students have some problems with accessing such events. The study is hard in these conditions, and sometimes I ask to write me an assignment this resource writemyassignmentuk as it provides high-quality help. I hope that all will change soon and all these events will take place the next year.

For possible future practicum placements please contact Jay Bexson, Program Coordinator, at
