The internships are expected to be for 8 months each, from [revised] November 2015 to July 2016 in the first year and from August 2016 to March 2017 in the second year. The first month will be spent in Canada preparing, and there is a two-week holiday approximately half-way through the placement.
Living and accommodation expenses are paid by the program, as well as travel costs to the overseas placement.
