International Pre-graduate Program (IPGP)
Teachers College, Columbia University has designed a six-week residency program that blends non-credit training courses and graduate offerings from our top-ranked programs in a first-of-its-kind program. This unique program offers academic and cultural support needed to transition to matriculation in a graduate degree program.
IPGP offers international students an opportunity to gain valuable experiences in addition to the option to enroll in two 3-credit or graduate-level courses. Students will experience graduate study in advance of their official graduate coursework and will have a chance to practice language and cultural competency skills in an authentic graduate school classroom.
TC’s IPGP also provides unparalleled access to graduate admission experts at top-ranked graduate schools, across multiple disciplines, and around the country, giving each cohort of students an extraordinary opportunity and training to succeed in the graduate admission process.
