The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) offers students the opportunity to build on their theoretical and practical knowledge and to develop their professional skills by completing an internship in a Canadian embassy abroad. These internships offer graduate students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained at university in a stimulating and challenging professional setting.
Students who are not part of the co-op program have the opportunity to apply for an embassy internship in the first summer of their studies. The selection process is on a competitive basis.
The GSPIA has agreements with several Canadian embassies abroad, among others: Helsinki, Riga, Zagreb, Ankara, Hague, Vienna, Hanoi, Brazil, Copenhagen, Vientiane, Singapore, Iceland and New York.
At the beginning of each session, GSPIA students will receive an email including application details and the list of embassies available for the next semester.
Please note that Embassy Internships are not remunerated. The Faculty of Social Sciences offers financial support to cover part of the cost of living.
