University of Ottawa’s Visiting Student Researcher program
The University of Ottawa’s Visiting Student Researcher program provides students at educational institutions in Canada and abroad the chance to come to the University to engage in research activities. Visiting Student Researchers enroll in the program and register to a non‐credit, non‐tuition bearing course code that denotes full‐time studies in academic research. Visiting Student Researchers will then have access to basic services offered to regular students, including access to the library, and do not have to pay tuition fees. The only fee associated with this status is the mandatory enrolment in the University Health Insurance Plan, at approximately $57 per month.
To be eligible, students must be enrolled at another academic institution (in Canada or abroad), and intend to come to the University of Ottawa for the purpose of conducting research on a project that is academically relevant and in line with the student’s academic program at their home institution. The apply to become a Visiting Student Researcher, students must first find a supervising professor who is able to host them throughout the duration of their research stay at the University of Ottawa. There are many ways in which they can find a supervisor: (1) they can visit the University of Ottawa website www.uottawa.ca and select the faculty or department that interests them to browse through the professors conducting research in their discipline and read their individual profiles to learn about their research; (2) they can also check theuOttawa Experts page to find researchers by their discipline, or the (3) the uOttawa UNIWeb portal, which is another way to find researchers by discipline. I do highly recommend that students take the time to carefully read researcher profiles and the content of their personal research website (where applicable) and to try to read a couple of their most recent publications. This will give them a better sense of what it is they research. Once students have found a professor, they must contact him or her by email to express their interest in enrolling in the Visiting Student Researcher program to pursue a research project with the professor. I strongly suggest that they avoid generic emails; instead, they should describe why they are interested in working with the professor, and outline how they feel they might be a good fit for his/her research team (including relevant experience both academic or professional), and include other key information such as proposed dates. Once a professor has agreed to supervise them, please contact me for access to the admission form or complete the attached form here and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
