SUMMER INTERNSHIP: TEAMWORK 2022 

The University of Toronto has engaged with top universities around the globe, to offer a unique opportunity to deliver a 4-week internship that will help you boost employability on the global work market, and will provide students with necessary intercultural skills.
Selected students will have the opportunity to work with other peers from around the world on an internal project proposed by a company or NGO for 4 weeks in July 2022. Students will participate in the program virtually each week, including both synchronous online international activities, and personal activities.

Participating students will learn to:

  • Work collaboratively globally
  • Build your CV and improve your employability skills
  • Find out more about yourself and explore career options
  • Gain a global network of friends and meet potential employers
     
The universities involved are: the University of Warwick (England),  the University of Toronto, Cornell University (USA), Hong Kong University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China). At the end of the internship, students will receive a certificate from the University of Warwick for participation in the program.

Timeline (may be subject to adjustments):
  • Middle of April - May: intercultural workshops, webinars and icebreaking activities with fellow team mates across the globe.
  • May - June: participating students will be allocated a real-life project and a global team. This period will be used for introductions, initial meetings and project briefs.
  • Last week of June - July: global teams will work together on their project.
Please note that the internship is unpaid.

Eligibility:
The internship is open to all undergraduate students, domestic and international, from all disciplines and all year groups. Students need an interest in gaining a global perspective and intercultural skills to help you stand out in applications and interviews for roles in Canada and beyond.
