You asked for it – Summer Research Abroad is now available!

So many students asked us about hosting a research abroad experience in the summer. We are happy to announce that program is finally here! Make plans now to join us in one of these eight countries next summer!!

UTK Summer International Research Opportunities Program

Choose from 8 countries to spend the summer conducting research. Open to every major, choose from Australia, Chile, China, England, Ireland, New Zealand, South Korea, or Spain. All research conducted in English unless otherwise noted.  A research-based internship provides you the opportunity to join an on-going research project for a short period of time, helping to clarify academic, career, and personal interests. You will step into existing projects at various stages of the research process and can engage a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods approach. Research-based placements are typically at universities abroad, but you could also be placed in the private business sector, as well as research centers. You should not expect to conduct your own research or advance personal research projects. Research placements are available in a wide array of fields depending on your interests and academic background. Whether you are studying STEM, the social sciences, communications and any other discipline, we will work with you to find a placement that fits your interests. Open to all majors with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
