The international aspect of the course facilitates exchange of diverse topics, research perspectives, experimental approaches, research design, and national traditions. Faculty plenary lectures, student research presentations, and extensive seminar format are intended to maximize student-student and student-faculty interaction, enrich learning and inspire creativity in research. The International Course also aims to enhance academic and research networks between Danish and Canadian institutions to enrich graduate student learning, faculty interaction and exploration of future research initiatives that result in student mobility, development of new programs, projects, partnerships, student involvement, and likelihood of longevity of collaboration. The course will provide a platform for launching national and international research funding initiatives.

The course is structured to form a foundational component of graduate study credits at Canadian universities and for ECTS credits at Danish Universities.The course is open to graduate students from around the world and will rotate annually between Canada and Denmark.
