International Research Exchange Opportunities Info Session @ Sandford Fleming Building, Room 1105
Nov 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Summer Research is an exciting opportunity for upper-year students to gain hands-on research experience at an international partner university while working towards U of T degree requirements.

Students can apply to one of the 20 partner universities based on their discipline, research interest match and general preference. In summer 2019, SREP will offer placements in Western and Central Europe, Asia and Mexico. Additional information on partner institutions and available projects is available on the Learning Abroad website.

Research placements usually last between 8 and 12 weeks. Each participant is attached to a lab or research project and works under the supervision of a local research faculty between 30 and 40 hours per week. In their spare time, participants can explore brave new worlds around them by travelling, engaging in local fun activities and possibly taking courses outside their research interests such as languages.

SREP application deadline: December 3, 2018.
