International Students


Internships – The College of Piping offers students a unique opportunity to enjoy learning, performance, travel, competition and the interaction of all College disciplines in a purpose-designed, world-class facility.

Pipers, drummers and dancers from all over the world have been coming to study at The College of Piping since its opening, as part of the internship program. An internship is an intensive program which immerses the student in their particular discipline over one or more twelve-week terms. Interns are encouraged to study other disciplines offered at The College at an introductory level.

The internship program is designed as a personal growth program; each internship is customized for the individual. In addition to the practical and theoretical study of the primary discipline, common elements of an internship include:

  • Multidisciplinary study
  • Apprentice teaching and mentoring
  • Participation in a competitive band or dance ensemble
  • Performance in College productions
  • Community based activities
  • Building leadership skills
  • Planning events, contests and performances
  • Being a part of The College’s team of employees and volunteers

All levels of experience are welcome; interns are required to bring dedication, enthusiasm and an open mind!

Dates: Internships are offered in three-month increments. While the terms are not regularly scheduled, students are encouraged to begin in September, January, April, or June. Many students opt to devote a year to study for three semesters and a competitive season.

Fees: Tuition is $2500 (Cdn Funds) for each 12-week session.
