To be considered for the IMES, you must:
- Be new to UBC, entering directly from secondary school or post-secondary (university or college).
- Be an international student who will be studying at UBC on a Canadian study permit (student visa). (Changes to your citizenship status will affect your IMES eligibility.)

How to apply
If you apply to UBC by January 15, you will be automatically considered for the IMES.
You will be considered for this scholarship shortly after you receive an offer of admission to UBC. Scholarship decisions are made between mid-March to the end of April each year.
Each UBC campus has a distinct range of degree programs. When you complete your application, you’ll have the opportunity to select a first and second choice of degree. The degrees you choose can be in different faculties and on different campuses. Think carefully about your choices and make sure you have all the prerequisite courses.
You’ll be evaluated for your second choice only if you are not admitted to your first choice, or if you contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office to request that UBC evaluate your second choice.
