We invite you to
participate in the 2018 International Undergraduate Summer Enrichment Program
at the University of Alberta, July 4 - August 16, 2018.
The International Undergraduate Summer Enrichment Program (IUSEP) will provide students with the opportunity to
study mathematics and experience campus life at one of Canada's top universities.
The program combines classroom learning and tutorial sessions with faculty mentors, guided problem-solving group projects,
cross-cultural learning opportunities, with time for social activities, exploration, relaxation and fun!
During this program, in addition to advancement in your mathematical skills and broadening your mathematical horizons,
you will also develop skills in: group work, cross-cultural communication, leadership, and public speaking.
Lectures and Tutorials:
Are you wondering what modern mathematics is like? Are you searching for your true passion in mathematics? or are you still trying
to decide on which area of mathematics you should pursue for graduate schools?
Our top researchers will give lectures on some exciting areas of modern mathematics. These lectures are given at a
level suitable for undergraduate students in mathematics, and aim to provide students with a glimpse and
taste of the kind of mathematics that are done in these areas.
These lectures will be supplemented by informal tutorial sessions where students can interact with the lecturers.
Problem-Solving Group Projects:
Our lecturers will each offer several stimulating problems in an area of mathematics, to be solved collaboratively by
students in groups. Each student group will consist of both Canadian and international students, to
facilitate cross-cultural learning and communication. Lecturers and graduate students will be mentors that guide the group projects.
Our social activities will allow you to experience campus life at UAlberta.
Explore the city of Edmonton and Canada's great outdoors - from our famous river valley to the Devonian
Botanic Garden, a 190 acre property of manicured gardens, mixed woodland vegetation and an extreme nature trail system,
as well as our many summer festivals. The cost of the social activities will be covered in the program fee.
The program is open to cohorts of students or individuals currently registered in a degree program at a designated university.
All participants are required to sign a Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement in order to participate in the program.
ACADEMIC CREDIT TRANSFER INFORMATION
The academic program will consist of 40 contact hours. A letter of participation confirming actual contact hours will be presented to each participant, with evaluations from instructors.
