Undergraduate students

Perimeter Institute offers exceptional opportunities for undergraduate students to interact with leading researchers from around the world.  Programs at Perimeter Institute allow undergraduate students to experience the day-to-day working life of a researcher while gaining valuable research experience for their upcoming graduate programs.

PSI Start Program

Perimeter Institute invites students to join its world-leading research community for a part-time 10-week online summer school in theoretical physics beginning in May 2023. In addition, some of these students will also come to Perimeter to participate in groundbreaking research through a paid internship program. All students will learn research tools and collaboration skills while immersed (online or in person) in the multi-disciplinary environment of the world’s largest independent theoretical physics research centre.

Perimeter Institute’s PSI Start program consists of two parts, and is for students who intend to apply to a physics graduate program.

Undergraduate mentoring events

Perimeter Institute is hosting several Undergraduate Mentoring Events in the building for upper-year physics undergraduate students. These events are planned for selected afternoons from 3:30 to 5:00 pm for local students. The undergraduate students have an opportunity to talk to scientists, experience scientific talks and get more information about Perimeter Institute.

To be added to the mailing list and be notified of upcoming events, please contact the Academic Coordinator.
