Graduate School Internship Program



Through the year- round Internship Program, The Cyprus Institute Graduate School aims to expose young talented students and scholars to an international research experience and to encourage and inspire them in the pursuit of a scientific career. Interns will have a unique opportunity to carry out research at the institute's state-of-the-art facilities supervised by a mentor and to be introduced to the use of the latest methods and techniques.  

During the application process, students will have to suggest a project of interest. Students must note that this will be considered, provided that the institute has the capacity in terms of supervision and facilities to accommodate the proposed project.

Applications are welcome from candidates worldwide with a keen interest and a relevant scientific background. 

Students who are accepted to the program will be assigned to one project. 

All applicants will be asked to justify what topic they want their internship to be on in a 300-word statement on the online application form.

Please note that if some of the projects may need to be offered remotely due to the developments related to the pandemic, there may be some additional background requirements that will be discussed with the mentor.
