Want to engage in research in an international setting? Spend the semester working closely with a research mentor and be a part of a real research project, grasping the complexities of the research project and gaining experience that will prepare you for a future career. By the end of the semester, you will have made your own tangible contribution to the project and honed your research skills. You will also have learned to communicate scientific ideas and findings, both orally and in writing, to members from your particular discipline as well as peers from other disciplines.
In some cases, data collected may be used as part of a project at your home university.
