Twenty-one international students from the Universities of Ottawa, Ryerson, Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier, the University of Toronto, and Queen’s were invited to Queen's University on July 21st 2016 as part of the Mitacs Globalink program.

Queen's School of Graduate Studies has invited Globalink participants for the past three years to visit the campus and Kingston, and meet faculty and graduate students in the disciplines they are interested in.

This year's participants (from Mexico, China and India) wanted to learn more about many disciplines at Queen's including physics, chemistry, geological sciences, urban and regional planning, cancer research, pathology & molecular medicine, biomedical and molecular sciences, epidemiology, public health, psychology, civil engineering, computing sciences, electrical & computer engineering, gender studies, education, and management. 

The students were welcomed by SGS Associate Dean Kim McAuley, Justin Moores, Director of Strategic Accounts & Business Development at Mitacs, and had the opportunity to connect with graduate students and faculty during a shared lunch.

The School of Graduate Studies thanks faculty, graduate students and QUIC staff for helping make the event a success. We hope all Globalink students enjoyed their time here and might consider Queen's when applying for the Globalink Graduate Fellowship.

The Mitacs Globalink Research Internship is a competitive initiative for international undergraduates from Australia, Brazil, China, France, India, Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia. From May to September of each year, top-ranked applicants participate in a 12-week research internship under the supervision of Canadian university faculty members in a variety of academic disciplines, from science, engineering and mathematics to the humanities and social sciences. Furthermore, Globalink Research Internship alumni interested in returning to Canada for graduate studies are eligible for the Globalink Graduate Fellowship.
