Can international students do a work experience?
  • Yes! International students are allowed to engage in employment through cooperative education and internships through the HU Friesen Center.

  • International students must complete a Curricular Practical Training (CPT) form and Experiential Learning Contract 
  • You must have already found a job before you can apply for CPT. You may engage in CPT only for the specific employer, location, and time period approved and recorded by the DSO in SEVIS. Each internship must be related to student's major and receive class credit for it. The Friesen Center can help locate internships, which can be either paid or unpaid.
  • The CPT position must be completed while you are enrolled as a full-time student in a degree-seeking program. You may get permission to register for fewer hours during your graduating semester.
  • The CPT position must be a required or optional part of the established curriculum for your major, as listed in the course catalog as an internship, practicum, work experience, or Friesen Center opportunity and you must be registered for the course(s) throughout your CPT.
  • There is no time limit, though one year of full-time CPT will replace your eligibility for OPT. Any amount of part-time CPT will have no effect on your eligibility for OPT. CPT is approved in the student life office by the DSO.
