The University of British Columbia has a reputation for excellence that is as spectacular as its picturesque setting in Vancouver, British Columbia. Founded in 1908, UBC is now one of the world's top 40 universities and a North American leader in teaching and research. Its innovative programs and faculty serve as a magnet that attracts some of the brightest students from across Canada and around the world.
UBC has a storied history of academic excellence and a reputation for leading edge research. UBC offers a wide range of undergraduate, post-graduate, and professional programs through 12 faculties and 11 schools on its Vancouver Campus. (A second campus, UBC Okanagan, is located in Kelowna, British Columbia.) The UBC library system includes 22 branches and divisions both on and off campus. There are also hundreds of spaces throughout the campus designed to support student learning.
Located just 12 kilometres from downtown Vancouver, the expansive campus offers views of nearby beaches and snow capped coastal mountains, as well as endless opportunities to explore the forested trails in the adjoining 763 hectare Pacific Spirit Regional Park. Vancouver is one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities and students have easy access to its vibrant restaurants, arts, and cultural activities.
UBC offers hundreds of majors, minors, and honours programs. Cross disciplinary thinking is highly valued at UBC, which is why we provide a host of interdisciplinary first year programs and integrated multidisciplinary majors. You can also combine your studies with full-time, paid work experience in your field through UBC's popular co-op program.
UBC has pioneered innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to the teaching of traditional first year courses in arts and science. Students entering the Faculty of Arts directly from secondary school may choose to apply for Arts One, an academically demanding 18 credit program that focuses on English, history, and philosophy or the Coordinated Arts program where first year students pursue an enriched, cross disciplinary introduction to the humanities and the social sciences.
Students entering the Faculty of Science directly from secondary school may choose to apply to Science One, a multidisciplinary 21 credit program that integrates the essential material of first year biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics or the Coordinated Science program that offers an integrated approach to the scientific disciplines through weekly interdisciplinary workshops.
UBC is the intellectual home of some of the world's leading scholars, artists, writers, and scientists including Dr. Carl Weiman, Nobel laureate, and Dr. William E. Rees, inventor of ecological footprint analysis.
A number of industry related research centres and organizations are located on-campus including Tri-University Meson Facility (TRIUMF), one of the world's largest national accelerator facilities for research in subatomic physics. UBC is also home to the Museum of Anthropology, Canada's largest teaching museum.
