How exactly does the IQP experience work?

In their sophomore year, students will usually apply for placement at one of 50+ project centers around the world to travel to in their junior year. While on site, students work in teams of four on a project that aims to tackle real-life problems and challenges where science and technology meet social issues and human needs. More information is available on the IQP website; additional questions may also be answered in a past IQP webinar or in the FAQ document.


A program budget list is available under the “Explore” tab on the IQP website, and our cost calculator can also help you and your student plan for IQP travel. Students may also access more detailed program costs in eProjects.
