International Research Opportunities Banner

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. 

Please note that each application is taken on a case by case basis and participation in a project or a particular research group is not guaranteed. The links below are meant to give you an idea of the projects that may be possible.

International Research Fall & Winter Research

The international research program 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.
