Non-degree program refers to internship or on-the-job (OJT) training curriculum. This program provides highly focused non-academic training opportunities for national scientists and students. Training activities in this mode range from several weeks to one year.
The International Rice Research Institute [IRRI] operates a very diverse and detailed rice research agenda involving many disciplines and addressing major issues facing rice production globally.
IRRI welcomes scientists and postgraduate students to join IRRI for periods of time for close engagement with its research agenda. These scientists and students may be ones who wish to gain and revitalize their knowledge and skill base on particular aspects of research at IRRI. Similarly, we welcome technicians who wish to increase their skills in a particular area by working alongside IRRI technicians in an international research environment.
