Internships at McGill are managed by each faculty or school and will normally require students to be returning to the university after the completion of their internship. Most faculties offer undergraduate and graduate students internships, co-op programs (mining engineering and materials engineering), practicums and field studies. These can take place in Canada and abroad – in some cases for credit.
