Full-time students registered in a research-based graduate program as set out in section D.3 Student Status may undertake either:
a) an internship for up to eight months, full-time (21 hours or more per week). This may be completed as a single internship or in blocks of time up to 8 months total, or
b) a part-time internship, up to one year (20 hours or less per week).
Normally, internships are undertaken after a doctoral student has completed all candidacy requirements, or after a student in a thesis-based master’s program has completed all course requirements.
Students enrolled in a thesis-based program may undertake an internship after a successful thesis defence, but before approval to graduate. The maximum duration of a post-defence internship will be four months, which must be completed within six months of the date of the thesis defence.
Full-time registration must be maintained until the end of the internship. Continuing fees will be assessed.
