GLSE Graduate Recruitment Student Group

“I am very happy and fortunate to have been a part of the GLSE recruitment student group. Working with other life science students on a project together and having a role in thinking of ideas and implementing them was an amazing learning experience. I would highly recommend others to get involved in the GLSE if you want to make a difference for other life science students by increasing the accessibility to information about graduate school options.“ Brianna Chan, Undergraduate Student

"I loved being a part of the GLSE student recruitment group. I had the opportunity to help run events and I was also able to meet many new people. It was a great learning experience!" Louiza Azzouz, Undergraduate Student

"As a former undergrad student at the University of Toronto, I see the value in the Graduate Shadowing Program. Students are given the opportunity to appreciate the work, commitment and dedication that graduate studies entails. Furthermore, it was an absolute pleasure to provide guidance and perspective to our aspiring future scientists as they maneuver through their studies while simultaneously discerning what the next step will be post-graduation. It is my sincerest hope that they all benefit from their undergraduate experience and enjoy success in their future endeavours." Mauricio Umana, MSc Candidate

"I have made new friendships as a member of the GLSE student recruitment group, meeting people from all different years of university, in different programs. It has been a great, educational experience, and has showed me how much effort really goes into organizing all of the events at U of T. It has given me extra appreciation for the U of T community." Katy Tiper, Undergraduate Student

"It was my pleasure to join GLSE recruitment student group. I had opportunities to help out organizing several events  (ex. 5th Annual Graduate Research Fair, UTM Graduate and Professional School Fair.). During the events, not only that I worked together with other brilliant minds from UofT life science. I also had the chance to meet and talked to many faculty members from different life science graduate departments. I got to learn and participate in event preparation and organization, and my academic planning was also benefited from myself the events we held. The project (the GLSE shadowing program) which our volunteer group initiated was very successful as it was the first time this group has ever done so. I highly recommend both undergraduate and graduate students to join our team. As this is a valuable chance for undergraduate students to get exposed to graduate programs in U of T as well as many other great schools in Canada. For graduate students, it is even easier for you guys to take roles at initiating and conducting new projects (the new GLSE shadowing program was initiated by one of our great Master student). Overall, no matter which positions you are currently at, as long as you are a U of T student, and you are interested in graduate programs, come joining us to let more people know our excellent graduate programs." Iris Ma, Undergraduate Student

"Joining the GLSE student recruitment group was a great opportunity for me as a graduate student to provide guidance and introduce the undergraduates at U of T to the plethora of research opportunities and career options available. Knowledge that I wished I received as an undergraduate. It was also a wonderful experience to be a part of the organizing team for the first GLSE graduate student shadowing program, to see an idea foster, and to help to start the foundation of a program that will aim to benefit our undergraduate students. Kati Mao, MSc Candidate
