The University of Alberta Research Experience (UARE) is a 12-week program which provides a unique opportunity for talented senior undergraduate students from key partner universities around the world to conduct research under the supervision of faculty members who are experts in their field. We are proud to offer research projects in a wide variety of disciplines, especially our university's signature areas, which are precision health, energy systems, and intersections of gender. Students gain hands-on research experience working under an expert in their academic discipline and receive an award of $6,000 CAD from the University of Alberta, which will help cover the costs associated with participating in the 12 week program. Research placements are typically available during the winter (January to March) and summer (May to August), but alternate start dates may be accommodated depending on the host professor.


You will gain hands-on, practical research experience both working independently and as part of a team at one of Canada's Top 5 research-intensive institutions. Specific tasks vary according to research projects offered across all disciplines.
