Faculty of Science

McGill is an exciting place for undergraduates in Science, offering many opportunities for hands-on experience. 

An internship allows you to apply knowledge gained from classes to hands-on work situations. Integrating theory with practice will help sharpen your professional skills and prepare you for your career.

Internships help you establish a better sense of your career goals. Paid internships can help finance your education. Upon graduation, many Science interns go on to permanent jobs with their host organizations.
