Universities Australia has signed an agreement with Canadian organisation, Mitacs, which will allow Australian undergraduate students to participate in an elite research internship programme in Canada for the first time.
From June to September each year, top-ranked Australian applicants will participate in a 12 week research internship under the supervision of a Canadian university faculty. Students are provided with professional skills training and gain valuable knowledge about Canadian industry and innovation. Interns interested in returning to Canada for graduate studies will be eligible for a Globalink graduate fellowship.
Please direct any queries about this scheme to Meaghan Butler, International Projects Officer, Universities Australia.
