STEM1STEM students admitted to CASA-Granada programs will have the exciting opportunity to apply for research assistantships at the University of Granada. CASA students accepted into this unique program will be paired with UGR graduate students in their respective fields of study. CASA students will work closely with the UGR graduate students and faculty acquiring hands-on experience in UGR and/or PTS (Parque Tecnólogico de la Salud) research labs and they will contribute their English skills in the revision of articles and posters.

CASA students at any level of Spanish language proficiency can apply for an assistantship. Beginner-level students will take intensive language classes at the Center for Modern Languages in the mornings and spend afternoons at their respective UGR/PTS placements. CASA-Granada staff will work with students in the other programs to arrange an assistantship schedule around their classes at the UGR/CLM (wherever possible).

Interested students must apply for the assistantship well in advance of their program start date. Students should contact the CASA-Granada staff as soon as they are accepted into a CASA-Granada program and confirm their participation so that appropriate placements can be identified.
