There are a variety of avenues through which you can receive experiential training during your undergraduate degree. This type of training helps you to learn and develop skills by applying theory to a concrete experience and reflecting on it. There are various courses in your program in which experiential learning is already incorporated, such as through laboratory sessions and research projects. However, there are many opportunities for experiential learning outside of the classroom, some involving volunteering and others providing funding (but they are competitive). Below is a list of the many different options through which experiential learning can occur, along with a link/email that provides further information:
- Course-related experiential learning (e.g. laboratory sessions, tutorial sessions, undergraduate thesis course, Science internship course, study abroad course, etc.)
- Volunteer in research lab* (see Faculty for list of iBio researchers)
- Apply to be an Outstanding Scholar
- Apply for summer Undergraduate Student Research Award (NSERC-USRA)
- Engage in Science Society
