Summer Institute 2017

International Summer Institute on Migration and Identity in Canada and Europe

For complete details on this institute, please visit Centre for European Studies website.

From the refugee crisis, to Brexit, to the US presidential election, issues of migration and identity have been central in 2016. This intensive summer course will bring together students and researchers from both sides of the Atlantic. Students will gain a greater understanding of contemporary issues and policy debates in Canada and the EU. We’ll also make the most of our location in Halifax. The lectures will take place at the Pier 21 National Historic Site of Canada, which is now part of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Canada's newest national museum. The institute also features field trips that will allow students to engage with local minority communities, museums and historic sites.

The International Summer Institute on Migration and Identity offers visiting students a package that includes an intensive credit course, experiences beyond the classroom, an optional ESL course, orientation, and on-campus accommodations.

Applications to the International Summer Institute on Migration and Identity have closed as of April 1, 2017

What’s next?

Notice of acceptance can take a few weeks. There are 2 phases to the acceptance process:

Phase 1

You will receive an email from the organizers indicating whether you have received funding support from the organizing committee. The funding support provided may cover all or a portion of your accommodations, airport pickup, and/or orientation meals and activities.

Any funding will be contingent upon acceptance to Dalhousie University.

Phase 2

Organizers will then submit your application package to the Dalhousie University Registrar’s Office. If you are accepted to Dalhousie University, you will receive an official acceptance letter from the Dalhousie University Admissions Office via email. Your acceptance etter will include your student number, or “B00” number (the number will start with “B00”). This is a very important number. Your acceptance letter may be required for your immigration visa paperwork, so please save it.

Organizers will then be in touch to help guide you through next steps once you are admitted, such as course registration, immigration entry paperwork and visas, booking accommodations, health insurance, orientation and paying any remaining fees (if applicable).
