IT’S ALL HERE.

From UBC’s two campuses you can

start a journey to anywhere.

Both UBc campuses are part of thriving communities that stimulate

the mind unlike anyplace else.

Vancouver is a cosmopolitan city renowned for its vibrant culture in

a setting of coastal beauty.

The okanagan Valley is a sunny region of lakes and mountains —

a scenic backdrop for year-round outdoor recreation.

But the campuses are just starting points, thanks to the local

opportunities and international connections that UBc provides.

IT’S ALL

YOURS.

Time at UBC is enriched with

friends, life-changing experiences,

and an education that will serve

you for a lifetime.

FROM HERE

TO THE

REST OF

THE WORLD.

Education is about more

than just textbooks, labs,

and lectures. Here, students

work directly with professors

and researchers on real-world

challenges — and many

innovative solutions come

from students themselves.

as a leading research university, UBc is where you’ll put your

education into action and help develop exciting ideas that have

the potential to change lives.

from across canada and around the globe, notable scientists,

scholars, artists, writers, and students are drawn here. They bring

with them diverse perspectives that will become part of your

experience, just as yours will become a part of theirs.

students here learn not only from their professors — who are

leaders in their fields — but from each other. after graduation,

you’ll be connected to a global alumni network of over 269,000

people in over 135 countries.

UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH

it isn’t just about opportunities to listen and learn. it’s about

becoming part of the conversation. as an undergraduate student

at UBc, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to practical,

hands-on research and develop innovative solutions to many of

the issues we face today. and no matter what your field of study,

opportunities like the annual multidisciplinary Undergraduate

Research conference will give you a forum to present your

research findings, analysis, or case study to the broader

academic community.

INTERDISCIpLINARY LEARNING

at UBc, you are encouraged to bridge your studies across

disciplines. for example, the irving k. Barber school of arts and

sciences encompasses two fields in one integrated learning

environment. arts one, science one, engineering one, and

other interdisciplinary programs explore traditional subject

matter through a rich variety of new perspectives.

GO GLOBAL, UBC-COMMUNITY LEARNING

INITIATIVE, AND CO-OpERATIVE EDUCATION

Your education at UBc reaches far beyond the campus through

local and global experiences. The UBc-community learning

initiative gives you the power to make a difference in the local

community, while go global lets you meet degree requirements

through international service learning (18 projects in 6 countries),

student exchange (175 university partners in 42 countries), or

taking courses with a UBc professor abroad in a group study

program (12 countries). with UBc co-operative education, you can

also combine your studies with paid work experience in your field.

AT UBC

Triumf

How do stars explode? How did stellar explosions form the chemical elements?

Which isotopes will be best suited for the next generation of medical therapies?

These are some of the questions that students and researchers at TRIUMF,

Canada’s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics on UBC’s

Vancouver campus, hope to answer.

The cyclotron at TRIUMF, the largest in the world, accelerates 1,000 trillion

particles to speeds of 224,000 km/s. (At this speed, you could travel from the

Earth to the Moon in two seconds.) This makes TRIUMF’s proton beam one of

the most intense in the world.

Beaty Biodiversity museum

When a blue whale, 26 m (85 feet) long, washed up on a beach in Atlantic

Canada in 1987, scientists buried the carcass in sand to preserve it for future

research and display.

Twenty years later, UBC turned the accidental death of the whale into an

opportunity to showcase the wonders of life. The skeleton was unearthed and

transported by train 6,000 km (3,700 miles) across Canada to Vancouver. Over

the next few years, the bones were meticulously degreased then reassembled.

This magnificent skeleton of the largest animal ever to have lived is now on

display in UBC’s Beaty Biodiversity Museum for the wonderment of all.

The CAPSL

The Centre for Advancement of Psychological Science and Law (CAPSL) at

UBC’s Okanagan campus is the site of world-class research on human behaviour

in forensic contexts. Researchers at CAPSL focus on the intersection of

psychology and law, including investigative psychology, police and jury decision

processes, and victim response to violent crimes.

Undergraduate researchers work alongside some of the brightest minds in

forensic psychology and have access to some of the best equipment available

to study human behaviour including devices to measure eye activity and

polygraphs to track heart rates and skin responses.

Each fall, snow is trucked to the sports field

on UBC’s Okanagan campus, rails and pipes

are set up, and snowboarders show off their

awesome (and sometimes not-so-awesome)

tricks while crowds cheer on. It’s a great

way to make new friends and have some fun

before snowboarding season begins on local

mountains Big White and Silver Star. Don’t

miss Rail Jam!

uBC Events

With hundreds of active clubs, groups, and departments

at UBC’s Vancouver campus, you’d think it would be

hard to keep track of all the great sports, entertainment,

academic, and other events happening throughout the

year. Not so! Students at UBC Events produce weekly

videos (“This Week at UBC” on YouTube), a blog, and

a Twitter feed that highlight upcoming events at UBC

so you’ll never need to miss out. They also maintain an

events calendar with listings from over 500 UBC eventproviders.

The Golden Spruce

For many years, a special spruce tree with a mutation that

caused its needles to be golden rather than green grew in

Haida Gwaii on British Columbia’s Northwest Coast.

The tree, held sacred by the Haida people, was cut down

and was feared to be lost forever. A UBC botanist had

taken cuttings from the tree, however, and grafted them

onto another spruce tree, giving new life to the Golden

Spruce in UBC’s Botanical Garden.

The Great Trek

UBC students are characterized by a

commitment to their university and their

willingness to take action to make a difference.

During its formative years, UBC was located

in Vancouver’s Fairview neighbourhood.

Construction of a new Point Grey campus

had stalled during World War I and this left

students in overcrowded lecture halls and

inadequate laboratories.

So, in October 1922, 12,000 students

marched to the unfinished Point Grey

campus in a pilgrimage that became known

as The Great Trek. One week later, they

presented a 56,000-name petition to the

government to complete the construction.

The government was convinced, and in

September 1925, students attended classes

on the new Point Grey campus.

CirS

Sustainability defines UBC as a university.

As a student, you will have many opportunities to

explore new sustainability approaches on campus

and to take those practices beyond UBC.

The Centre for Interactive Research on

Sustainability (CIRS) is North America’s greenest

building. It warms itself with heat wasted by a

less efficient neighbour, creates drinking water

from rain, and treats wastewater on-site. It is

one of only a handful of buildings worldwide that

provides net positive benefits to the environment.

The Engineering,

management,

and Education

YOU.UBC.CA — 13

Water conservation, radiant in-floor

heating, and rooftop ventilators that

recover heat from the exhaust are just some

of the energy-saving features incorporated

in the design of the Engineering,

Management, and Education Building on

UBC’s Okanagan campus.

The building, completed in June 2011, is

expected to achieve LEED Platinum for

energy-conservation initiatives that include

a green roof that controls glare and captures

rainwater for irrigation. The building also

has kiosks where students, staff, and faculty

can fill reusable bottles with filtered water.

DEGREE.

With popular beaches, international

food, and a lively social scene, the

campus is so easy to live on that some

students say they hardly need to leave.

Consistently rated one of the most liveable cities in

the world, Vancouver is a vibrant metropolis. It’s

also strikingly diverse, with 40% of the population

born outside Canada. With world-class recreational

and cultural attractions, the spectacular setting

between the Pacific Ocean and the towering Coast

Mountains, Vancouver is truly amazing. With a

student population of over 48,000, the campus is a

picturesque city unto itself within easy access to

Vancouver’s downtown core.

UBC’s Vancouver campus is located on the

traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the

Musqueam people. For generations, they have

taught their culture and history to Musqueam

youth on these lands — a tradition that continues

to this day.

“Not only does uBC offer a great education, but

the athletic-academic combination is definitely

the best in Canada.”

As all competitive swimmers know, getting a good

start is key. UBC Thunderbird Martha McCabe was

the only female swimmer in Canada to pre-qualify for

the London 2012 Summer Olympics — an undeniably

good start to the Games. The Toronto native also won a

bronze medal in the women’s 200-metre breaststroke

at the 2011 World Championships in Shanghai, China.

The raven and

the first men

The Haida story of the creation

of the first people is depicted in

sculptor Bill Reid’s The raven

and the first men, on display at

UBC’s Museum of Anthropology.

The story goes: after the great

flood, a raven was walking along

a beach and heard sound coming

from a clamshell. Looking

inside, he saw it was full of small

people. The raven coaxed them

out and these are the original

Haida — the first humans.

The sculpture was commissioned

for the museum and is

displayed in its own gallery.

It sits atop a World War II gun

turret that remained on site

when the museum was built.

AT UBC

The Commons

The phrase “tuum est” (it is up to you) characterizes all aspects of life

at UBC, and the broad Commons on UBC’s Okanagan campus is a great

place to see students putting this philosophy into action. This wide

grassy common is where you can relax and study while enjoying the

beautiful Okanagan weather and scenery — or meet with friends from

the adjacent student residences. The Commons is also home to a large

outdoor concert during the first week of school every September.

FOR

pARENTS.

Dr. Parul agarwal

mumbai, india

mother of rushat Agarwal,

an international Leader of

Tomorrow Award recipient

“Around this time last year, I

was a worried mother. I knew

we had made the right decision

in choosing to send our son

to UBC, yet we were sending

Rushat thousands of miles

away to live on his own … I was

apprehensive about how he

would cope.”

Today, Parul Agarwal is a

relieved mother. With the help

of UBC’s Jump Start Program,

a supportive admissions team,

participation in a World Model

United Nations conference,

and many new friends, her son

Rushat is thriving at UBC.

“There is nothing more a mother

would want for her child.”

As a parent, you can be sure that your

son or daughter will receive a world-class

education and the support they require

to excel.

One of two universities in Canada with a

Nobel laureate on faculty, uBC has also

produced six rhodes scholars in the past

seven years. The university is consistently

ranked among the top 40 research

universities worldwide.

Because of uBC’s research base, students

have the opportunity to participate in

internationally recognized work. uBC

ranks ahead of miT and Stanford in uS

patents filed and startups formed (per

uS$100 million of research funding) and

brings in half a billion dollars in research

funding annually.

THEIR FUTURE

a UBc degree is internationally recognized. every

year, hundreds of UBc graduates are accepted into

leading professional schools and graduate programs

around the world.

(okanagan) help students find employment and transform

their academic and other experiences into a rewarding

career. most programs offer internships and postgraduation

TUITION AND FINANCIAL pLANNING.

Tuition fees at UBc compare favourably with schools of the same high

international calibre. however, financing your education is a significant

investment and you and your family need to determine whether you have

the financial resources to cover tuition and living costs for the duration of

your time at UBc.

most bachelor’s degrees at UBc take four years of full-time study to

complete. all estimated costs here are quoted in canadian dollars.

Tuition is charged on a per-credit basis, not a “flat rate.” Tuition costs

vary depending on how many credits you take, which program you are

taking, and whether you are an international (visa) student or a citizen or

permanent resident of canada.

CANADIAN STUDENTS

201213 tuition fees for canadian citizens or permanent residents

(regardless of where they live) are calculated at $156.68 per credit

for most programs. Tuition fees are higher in the Pharmacy program

($231.00 per credit), and after the first year in the sauder school of

Business ($232.15 per credit) and in applied science ($167.25 per credit).

INTERNATIONAL

201213 tuition for international students (non-canadian citizens or

permanent residents) is calculated at $754.05 per credit for most

programs. Tuition fees for the sauder school of Business are higher, at

$844.88 per credit.

students and parents planning for their education at UBc should be

aware that international tuition fees are reviewed annually by UBc’s

Board of governors and are subject to annual cost of living changes. in

the past few years these inflationary increases have ranged between

2% and 3%. new fees are assessed beginning in may of every year.

inflationary costs also impact housing and other goods and services. in

the past few years the rate of inflation for these costs in canada has been

a modest and fairly stable 2% to 3%.

FINANCIAL AWARDS

AND SUppORT.

UBC recognizes and rewards academic

excellence. With the help of our donors,

the university provides over $25 million

annually in scholarships, bursaries, and

work and study opportunities to outstanding

undergraduate students who demonstrate

academic excellence, leadership qualities,

and financial need.

UBc students are bright, motivated and engaged. That said, there are a

limited number of awards and not every student who qualifies will receive

one. for information on all of these programs, visit

full-time study is demanding but some students choose to work while

studying to get career-related job experience and help offset expenses.

however, part-time work cannot be relied upon to cover tuition and living

expenses.

UBc work study/work learn is an employment program that helps fund oncampus

jobs for students. all students registered in a minimum

number of credits per term are eligible. in addition, many programs

offer paid co-op placements or internships as part of your degree.

canadian students and most international students holding a canadian study

Permit may work part-time on or off campus. To work off-campus, students

must have a work permit, for which most students can apply after six months

of study. after graduation, most international students are eligible to apply for

a three-year work permit. interested students can verify their eligibility online.
