iROP International Research Opportunities

Give your academic career an edge – work in a foreign lab, learn new research techniques, and network with professors and graduate students from universities around the world. Students who have completed their second year of studies can participate in international research in one of two ways.

iROP Fall + Winter Research

The iROP program is unique to UTM. It gives you the opportunity to combine laboratory research experience with travel abroad. You can spend a semester or academic year abroad combining international research with courses that work towards your degree.

Students receiving OSAP or other financial aid are invited to apply for the CIE International Program Bursary to cover a portion of the costs of their exchange.
