The University of British Columbia is one of the world’s top forty universities. The institute invites high-ranking, competitive students to apply for its equally prestigious undergraduate programs.
Although application requirements vary depending on degree and campus of choice, all applicants must meet UBC’s general admissions requirements and English Language admission standard.
Because English is the primary language of instruction at UBC, all students must demonstrate a minimum level of English proficiency before being admitted. This may be met through nine different pathways, such as completing three or more years of full-time education in English in Canada or the United States.
Applicants who have studied at a Canadian high school, international high school, Canadian college, or international college will follow several simple procedures. They should first choose their degree of choice and campus, while at the same time ranking a second choice, just in case.
In addition to meeting the English language requirement, all students must meet prerequisite requirements for the degree of interest. In preparing their applications, students should also consider which stories and attributes they would like to share as part of their profiles. Students may share characteristics such as what is most important, what has been learned outside of school, and other ideas. The online application for the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses opens in early September and closes on January 15. The application fee must be paid upon completion of the application, and no later than January 15. Some degrees require additional fees in addition to the initial application fee.
Students wishing to live in a UBC residence must apply through the UBC Student Housing application. In order to be guaranteed housing, students must accept their offers of admission to UBC by no later than June 1. MOre information may be found on the University of British Columbia website, at you.ubc.ca.
