Exchange programs are a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture while earning an academic credit. On exchange, you will find yourself with locals and living close to the pulse of the host culture. The University of Toronto has agreements with various universities around the world. Depending on the host university and your interests, you can conduct research with faculty at a partner institution listed on the CIE website.

International Course Module
Since the ICMs were first introduced, more than 50 groups of students have traveled to destinations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and the United States. Modules are integrated into the course plan and travel is scheduled to coincide with Reading Week.
Student groups may submit ICM proposals with a sponsoring faculty member. See submission guidelines for complete information.
Please note: The ICM program funds Arts & Science students and faculty only, and faculty members from Medicine wishing to apply for this program would need to provide funding for their travel.
This exciting program allows science students to complete a research course at one of several prestigious research facilities located overseas. Students will collaborate with colleagues from other countries, and explore problems of a global nature. Through this experiential learning process, students will have the chance to relate their academic studies to real-world lab situations, while also earning course credit that will count towards their degree requirements

Graduate and Life Sciences Education, Faculty of Medicine will award 8 annual summer research project studentships per summer to support third or fourth year specialist and/or major students in our Basic Science departments and in Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology. Non-University of Toronto students should have equivalent qualifications. This is to provide mentored research opportunities for undergraduate students who undertake in depth study in one of our life sciences programs of study. Each department receives one studentship per summer to be awarded to a student the department selects based on excellent academic merit and interest in future graduate training. The award carries a value of $4,800 each.
In addition to these conditions, the submissions should have the following attributes
Please Note: It is the responsibility of Faculty Supervisor/Department Chair/Division to communicate all award/payment/reporting details to the student.
The 398/399 Research Excursions provides an opportunity for Arts & Science (St. George) degree students in their third year (i.e., after completing at least 9 but not more than 14 credits) to participate in a practical or experiential activity under the supervision of a faculty member. The practical, experiential component can take the form of research/learning in archives, laboratories, libraries, or in a field camp, etc.—but not in a classroom at another university (that is covered by the Faculty’s summer abroad and exchange programs). The projects run within the May-August period, when both Faculty and students would be able to make the time commitments necessary. Regular tuition fees apply.
Each 398H0/399Y0 has a program-specific designator, such as ANT, CLA, CSB, VIC, etc., and would be eligible to count towards program completion if the program sponsor (Chair or Director) so chooses. A limited number of 398H0/399Y0 courses are available each year. Faculty supervisors propose the projects and choose the students who apply.
Students must also attend a Safety Abroad Seminar. Descriptions of the projects are available on the Faculty's web site in early February.
Applications are available online and must be emailed to the supervising instructor by late February (due date indicated on the website). Students are informed in mid-March whether they have been accepted. Successful applicants are registered by the 399 office.
Research Opportunity Program
A limited number of 299Y1/399Y1 courses are available each year. Faculty supervisors propose the projects and choose the students who apply.
Descriptions of ROP projects are available on the Faculty's web site mid-February. Students wishing to participate should email online ROP Application forms to undergraduate.artsci by the due date indicated on the website.
Students can apply to a maximum of three ROPs in total, but can accept only one project. Students are informed in early July (mid-April for Summer courses) whether they have been accepted. Successful applicants are registered by the ROP office.
Students are expected to keep a journal recording meetings, progress, and what was learned about the project in particular and the nature of research in general.

Undergraduate Student Research Awards (URSA) in Universities
The undergraduate student research awards are available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents registered as full-time students in eligible undergraduate programs in the natural sciences or engineering at the time of application. When the award is held, the student must have completed all the course requirements of at least the first year of university study (or two academic terms) of your bachelor's degree, and must not have started a program of graduate studies. Students must have obtained a cumulative average of at least second class (B) over the previous years of study. Students are eligible if they are registered in a bachelor’s degree program leading to an honours degree or a degree with a major. Candidates for undergraduate professional degrees in the health sciences (eg MD, DDS, BScN) are not eligible to hold these awards. The awards have a value of $4,500. A travel allowance may also be granted if the award is taken at another Canadian university. The work must be performed under the supervision of a faculty member who holds an active NSERC research grant. The normal duration of the award is 16 consecutive weeks. Universities are required to supplement each award by at least 25%. Universities may also provide fringe benefits. Please Note: Students should apply through the supervisor’s department. Individual departments may have their own internal deadline for receipt of applications.
Please visit the Research Services URSA webpage for more details.
Deadline for applications: January 9, 2017.
