International Preparatory Programs

Welcome! The University of British Columbia (UBC), Continuing Studies recognizes that international students are faced with both academic and cultural challenges when applying to and studying in North American university programs.

For students preparing for undergraduate study in North America we offer the International Undergraduate Study Preparation Program (IUSPP).

For students preparing for post-graduate study in North America, we offer the International Graduate Study Preparation Program (IGSPP) and the International Graduate Study Introductory Program (IGSIP).

Each of these full-time pre-masters programs takes place at the scenic UBC campus in Vancouver.

For high school students, 15- to 18- years old, looking for a summer North American pre-university program we offer Experience University Life at UBC (EUL).
