McMaster University is one of four Canadian universities consistently ranked among the Top 100 by the major global ranking systems. Its research intensity is twice the national average and we are home to world-renowned academic programs. As part of our commitment to experiential learning and ensuring our students are career ready, we also offer a large number of co-op and internship opportunities for our students. Our students participate in over 2500 work terms annually.

We encourage eligible employers to take advantage of BioTalent’s wage subsidy programs:

SWILP: wage subsidies of  up to $7,000 per student when hiring students registered in STEM or business programs at Canadian post-secondary institutions.

Career Focus Green Jobs: wage subsidies up to $13,500 for hiring recent graduates into jobs with an environmental focus or into opportunities that have a green mandate

As an Academic Partner with BioTalent, we would be happy to help connect you with the right student to meet your company’s needs.
