Student & Research Opportunities

The Vector Institute is not a degree-granting institution. Students affiliated with the Vector Institute will be full-time graduate students at an affiliated university. Students interested in studying at Vector should apply directly to departments of affiliated universities where Vector-affiliated faculty hold academic positions, and state in their application their desire to work with Vector-affiliated faculty. Due to volume, individual faculty do not respond to individual requests to evaluate applications.

Please continue to check our website for the most up-to-date list of affiliated universities.

Affiliated universities:

If you are an undergraduate student or high school student interested in pursuing an education in machine learning and artificial intelligence, you can contact a program administrator or the Office of Research at your university of interest to learn about prerequisites and relevant courses. Students pursuing an education in machine learning and artificial intelligence typically have a strong foundation in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or statistics.

We are in the early stages of building the Vector Institute’s academic programs. Vector is not currently accepting applications for internships, research assistants or visiting scientists.
