Important Note:

In light of the challenges and uncertainties posed by COVID-19, Carleton University has made the decision to limit Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 term placements to virtual and local opportunities.

What is an International Placement?

An international placement is an opportunity to work internationally for academic credit, and is typically unpaid. Completing an international placement is an excellent way to gain real-world work experience, develop contacts in your field and build your resume to market yourself for future career opportunities.

Placement details are as follows:

  • Placements take place during the summer term
  • Placements are between 6 and 12 weeks, and equivalent to full-time work (35 hours per week)
  • Positions are unpaid, but students receive academic credit as part of their internship (Course: GINS 3900 is 0.5 credit for a 6-week internship, GINS 3901 is 1.0 credit for a 12-week internship)

Applications for Fall 2020 are now open!

Eligibility

In order to be eligible for the program, students must:

  • have a minimum 7.0 CGPA
