EU-Canada Study Tour and Internship Programme 2013 – “Thinking Canada”

April 8, 2013

The call for applications has been launched. Deadline for applications: 23 April.

“Thinking Canada” is an initiative of the European Network for Canadian Studies, funded generously by the European Commission – a four-week study tour to Canada for European students that will take place from 1 – 29 September 2013, followed for selected participants by two-month internships. It will commence with three days of briefings in Brussels on the EU and EU-Canada relations.

The aim of the study tour – supported by the European Commission within the EU-Canada Programme on Cooperation in Higher Education, Training and Youth – is to provide participants with an understanding of EU-Canada relations and the complex diversity of Canada itself. It accomplishes this by offering them a unique in-depth experience of Canada achieved through an intensive programme of visits to major private and public institutions, government bodies, think tanks and NGOs. At each place, the students will receive briefings and have the opportunity to exchange views with representatives of these bodies, many of them leading experts in their fields. The tour will begin in Brussels, and travel to Ottawa, Québec, Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria.
