May is an exciting time for your students as many of them will be making their final university decisions for the fall. Here are some important resources to help you navigate the home stretch.

Deadline to accept offers of admission

Students can find the date by which to accept their offer in the Student Service Centre. Generally the deadline to accept an offer of admission from UBC Okanagan is June 1, and some students admitted to the Vancouver campus have been given extensions to the May 1 deadline. Students can accept their offer and pay their acceptance deposit in the Student Service Centre.

Next steps for admitted students

Students who have received an offer of admission from UBC might be wondering what’s next. Our after you've been admitted page offers a step-by-step guide and video to help admitted students plan their  finances, secure housing, figure out course planning, and complete other crucial tasks between now and September.

 Orientation options for new students

Once your students have accepted their offer to UBC, they’re ready to start thinking about the orientation options available to them this summer. Together, these orientations are designed to help them meet their first friends, get familiar with their new campus, and feel confident in their academic readiness so they have more time to focus on what matters in September.

 International study permits

 International students attending high school in Canada (who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada) should obtain a post-secondary study permit to study at UBC. That will involve changing the conditions on their current permit. If your students will be arriving to UBC from a different country, more guidance can be found on the coming from abroad page.

 UBC’s national mailout goes digital

In keeping with UBC’s sustainability goals we are pivoting our print publications into a digital format.  Instead of shipping out packages to all the school across the country we will be sharing our recruiter contact sheet, Prospective Undergraduate Guide and other information about programs and awards in a digital format.  This new, centralized delivery will make it easier to share information with colleagues and students.

Virtual fall presentations

While we would have liked to connect in person this fall, to ensure everyone’s safety we will be hosting our school presentations and counsellor events online again this year.  We'll reach out to you in a few weeks to start scheduling school visits. In the meantime, if you have any questions,  concerns or would like to confirm a booking, send us an email at ac.cbu@ko.tnemtiurcer or ac.cbu@tnemtiurcer.suonegidni .

UBC Future Global Leaders

The UBC Future Global Leaders pre-university program offers high school students ages 15-18 an educational, social, and cultural experience from a first-rate Canadian university. Students take first-year-level online academic courses taught by top UBC professors, explore their interests, and gain a head start on achieving their university goals. Summer registration is now open.

 Program spotlight: Manufacturing Engineering

If your students enjoy solving problems and designing new things, they should take a look at Manufacturing Engineering. Manufacturing engineers are tasked with turning materials into new products in the most effective, efficient, and economical way they can. At UBC, your students will get the chance to study the entire manufacturing process, from designing concepts and building mechanical parts through to product delivery. Studying on UBC’s  Okanagan or Vancouver campus – or both – they’ll gain the technical skills that set them up for a broad range of jobs in the industry.

That's all for now! As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you or your students have any questions.

How UBC makes admissions decisions

Some of your students haven't received a decision yet because students who did not receive a first-round offer or who applied after December 1 are currently being evaluated for admission. Find out how UBC evaluates applications and  when students can expect their admissions decision

September 2021 and COVID-19

As the world begins to move toward life after the pandemic, your students are likely wondering what the upcoming semester will look like.

Based on the strong and effective safety plans put in place by the government, as well as BC’s vaccination schedule, UBC is preparing for students to begin their studies on campus in September. The health and wellbeing of our students is the top priority. As the situation continues to evolve, please keep checking this blog post to find out the latest.
