The programme of the ISS covers a period of 30 workdays. There is no participation fee. Costs for your accommodation, the social programme organized by ISS and training activities are covered.
To be eligible to apply for the ISS you need to have been successfully studying a life sciences related subject at university for a minimum of three years by the time of the ISS. Students currently studying for a Master’s degree can also apply. Since the programme has a strong hands-on focus, you should have previous research experience.
The ISS is an international programme and applications are encouraged from students from all over the world.
The international nature of the ISS means that the entire programme is held in English, so you need to be able to communicate in this language.
