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:
Students transferring into Integrated Sciences from other specializations may apply to Integrated Sciences on a case-by-case basis. These students must first gain permission to start the proposal from either the Program Manager or Program Director. Please e-mail email@example.com to request an appointment (please also include your rationale for switching into Integrated Sciences).
With approval from the Program Manager, transfer students may apply to Integrated Sciences by submitting a Degree Proposal. 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.
