Department of Russian and Slavic Studies


The Russian Studies Internship Project is designed to assist McGill undergraduate students in the Department of Russian Studies in their search for a first career related work experience. These internships can also give students the opportunity to improve their Russian language skills and explore the Russian community at home and abroad. Internships may last from eight weeks to four months, and perhaps longer. A database has been created to assist students with their search.

Students must receive approval to participate in a PSC-approved internship program. For questions regarding specific student eligibility (including pay), email ion [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Laura Di Maio).

Post-Secondary Co-op/Internship Program

What is a Post-Secondary Co-op or Internship Program? The Co-operative Education and Internship Program (Co-op/Internship) is the primary vehicle through which federal organizations can recruit post-secondary students for a four-month work term. An internship is a supervised, on-the-job training assignment designed to give students the skills and knowledge required for entry into a trade or profession.
