UKRI has partnered with Mitacs to offer 12-week research placements in Canadian universities to up to 200 UK doctoral candidates. The aim is to give participants the opportunity to develop into global citizens, with international competencies.
The UK-Canada Globalink Doctoral Exchange Scheme will support travel, living and research costs for the successful applicants in their chosen field of study.
A similar number of Canadian students will take part in placements at UK universities.
Applications are open now, with a closing date of Thursday 12 December. The first exchanges will take place from April 2020.
