Summer Research: University of Graz

Graz, an European cultural capital, is an important gateway to neighbouring countries and foremost South-Eastern Europe because of its geographical situation (2 hrs to Vienna, 1 hr to Maribor/Slovenia, 4 hrs to Venice). The variety of the cultural scene is strongly influenced by the almost 50.000 students who come here to live and learn at one of the four universities.


Credit Equivalency: 5.0 credits at UofT = 60 ECTS. Note: Instead of getting a transcript from the host university, admitted students must enroll in an Independent Research (or similar) course in the equivalent department at U of T. Please see the project descriptions for further information.

Research Projects:

On-campus housing not available.

Funding: Students applying to Graz for 12 weeks should also apply for Globalink Research Award. Successful GRA applicants will not be considered for $3000 CIE funding and IE Award because the GRA amount is greater of the two.

Application Requirements: Additional application documents are required for this experience. Please see the project descriptions for further information. Submit the documents as one PDF document by December 3, 2020.
