Visiting student researchers
Your first step would be to contact a UCalgary research supervisor in the faculty of your area of research interest to confirm they’d would be willing to host you on their research team. Once you have this confirmation, apply for admission to the VSP program using the links below.
After you’ve been formally admitted to the VSR program and have a UCalgary letter of acceptance, please have your supervisor complete the assessment form . We require this information to assess which application stream (work permit versus study permit) will be the best suited route for your VSR appointment at UCalgary.
Conducting research in Canada, regardless of if it’s for study purposes or not, is considered work. As such, proper authorization is required.
