Placement Proposal Form (MSW)

This form provides Master of Social Work (MSW) students an opportunity to recommend placement opportunities with a particular agency, or initiative/department within an agency.

Ensure that you are submitting proposals for agencies that you have some knowledge about, are interested in, and are aware that the agency provides MSW placements. This is information you may have obtained from their website, coworkers, peers or students from other schools who have completed placements with these agencies in the past. Once a form is submitted, the Field Education Office will then follow up directly with the placement to assess the suitability of the placement and accordingly negotiate agreements and conduct field visits.


Students interested in proposing a placement opportunity for the winter term (start date in January) must submit this form by 9 a.m. on Aug. 28. Students interested in proposing a placement opportunity for the fall term (start date in September) must do so by 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 12. This will provide the field office adequate time to consider each student's proposal.


Due to the large volume of emails we receive, we may not be able to respond to a question that is addressed below, so it is important to note the following:

Reminder: Students cannot contact agencies to inquire about placements or arrange their own interviews.
