Progressing through the IS program is a two-step process. You apply to the specialization via the UBC Science coordinated second-year application, and complete a separate IS Degree Proposal after admission to be promoted to third year.
- Apply through the Faculty of Science 2nd year application.
- Start working on your IS Degree Proposal. The proposal must be approved in order to be promoted to 3rd year.
Students transfering to Integrated Sciences from other specializations:
We are currently not accepting transfer applications due to limited space. We anticipate that space will be available in the Fall. When space permits, transfer students may apply to Integrated Sciences by submitting a Degree Proposal (completing step 2 above). Your specialization will not be changed until your Integrated Sciences degree proposal is approved. Please note, deadlines will come into effect as of November of your 2nd year: Once you start a Degree Proposal you'll have 2 months to find a mentor and then 3 months to have your proposal approved. If these deadlines are not met, your account will expire and a space will open for another prospective student.
