International Research Learner
Requests for an International Individualized Research Learning (IIRL) Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center must be approved by the sponsoring supervisor, Department Chair, Office of International Programs, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs and Vice Chancellor of Research. The International Individualized Research Learning Program for Internationals is overseen by the Office of International Programs (OIP). Individuals participating in this program through the Office of International Programs are non-U.S. citizens or non-U.S. permanent residents.
The IIRL Program is an opportunity for an individual to engage in an educational research experience for his/her own benefit including professional development. The opportunities to participate in this program are limited and require a strong endorsement from the sponsoring department. Internationals participating in the Individualized Research Learning Program are limited to a 4-month visit, with the possibility of one 4-month extension with a formal request to OIP and approval by the Vice Chancellor of Research.
*Please note: There are OIP administrative fees and sponsoring department fees for this program. Please contact our office for the current fee schedule.
