The International Graduate Study Introductory Program (IGSIP) is a short summer program for international undergraduate students in their first to third year who are considering a master's degree in North America in the future. It is specifically designed to provide students with an overview of graduate study and academic culture in Canada and the US. Benefits of the program include:
IGSIP is offered annually in July/August. For 2014, the program dates are July 17-August 8. Applicants are required to be current university undergraduate students with one-to-three years of study completed. Students should have intermediate level English skills (approximately IELTS 5.5) and a B grade level (GPA of 70%).

Completion of IGSPP or IGSIP does not guarantee admission to graduate programs at UBC or any other post-secondary institution. Admission to these programs is controlled by that institution's policies and admission standards.
