UK-Canada Globalink Doctoral Exchange Scheme
A new and exciting opportunity for UKRI and Canadian doctoral students to participate in a UK-Canada research exchange scheme. Supported by UKRI and Mitacs, up to 200 UK doctoral candidates will have the opportunity to develop into global citizens, with international competencies, during 12-week research placements in Canadian universities; a similar number of Canadian students will visit UK universities.
UKRI has partnered with Mitacs, a national, not-for-profit organization that has designed and delivered research and training programs in Canada for 20 years, to deliver the £2.5 million programme.
Now open for applications, until 12 December 2019, the UK-Canada Globalink Doctoral Exchange Scheme will support travel, living and research costs for the students in their chosen field of study.
Following a competitive application process, the first exchanges will take place from April 2020.
