I cannot provide a definite answer about your chances of getting into UBC as it depends on various factors such as your extracurricular activities, work experience, and the overall strength of your application. 

Additionally, the University of British Columbia (UBC) considers a wide range of criteria when making admissions decisions, including academic performance, personal achievements, and the overall strength of the applicant pool. It is best to check the official website of the University of British Columbia for more information on their admissions requirements and process.

If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies in computer science, there are many universities around the world that have strong programs in this field. Some universities to consider include:

  1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
  2. Stanford University
  3. University of California, Berkeley
  4. California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
  5. University of Oxford
  6. University of Cambridge
  7. ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
  8. Carnegie Mellon University
  9. Georgia Institute of Technology
  10. University of Toronto

Please note that this list is not exhaustive and there are many other universities around the world that have strong computer science programs. It is important to research the different universities and their specific program offerings to determine which one aligns best with your interests and career goals.

It is important to note that, the admission requirements and process for graduate studies vary from university to university, research the universities you are interested in and their specific admission requirements and process.

Gaining admission to the Master’s in Computer Science program at the University of British Columbia (UBC) with a 9.5 CGPA from an A+ graded university is a strong start, but admission will depend on several factors beyond your CGPA:

  • Academic Requirements: UBC typically requires a four-year Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a closely related field with a minimum B+ (76% at UBC) average in your third- and fourth-year courses. Your 9.5 CGPA suggests you’re likely above this threshold, which is promising.
  • Standardized Tests: Depending on your educational background and the specific requirements of the UBC program, you may need to submit GRE scores. Check the program's current requirements to see if this applies.
  • Letters of Recommendation: UBC will require letters of recommendation, generally from academic advisors or professors who can speak to your academic abilities and potential for graduate studies.
  • Statement of Purpose: This is a crucial part of your application where you can explain your research interests, academic and professional background, and why you want to pursue a graduate degree at UBC.
  • Research Experience: Having research experience, especially relevant to your proposed area of study, can significantly enhance your application. Publications or participation in significant projects can also be beneficial.
  • English Language Proficiency: If you are from a non-English speaking country, you’ll need to meet the English language proficiency requirement through tests like TOEFL or IELTS, unless you have studied in an English-medium institution for several years.
  • Application Completeness and Quality: Ensure that all parts of your application are complete, well-prepared, and submitted by the deadline. Attention to detail can make a significant difference.

Given your high CGPA, you have a competitive edge academically. Focus on strengthening the other aspects of your application, especially your statement of purpose and letters of recommendation, to improve your chances of admission to UBC Masters in Computer science program.
