Travel & internships

One internship at another workplace is a mandatory part of studies in Life Sciences program. The internship of at least 80 hours is mainly organized in a frame of CEITEC laboratories in agreement with the supervisor. However, it can be carried out at the workplace outside the institute, the most recommended is an internship abroad.

You can use existing networks of partner institutions or establish contact with a new lab of your choosing. Don't hesitate to contact big names in your particular area of interest - you may be surprised how open they are to collaborate. Alternatively, ask your supervisor or group leader for the list of current options in your lab. 

Financing your stay abroad

Multiple options of financing offers the MU Centre for international cooperation.
To find out about exchange programs running at CEITEC, ask your supervisor, the head of your lab or contact the Grant Office (grants@ceitec.muni.cz)

Administrating an internship
