The University of British Columbia is a global center for research and teaching, consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world. The university also provides a wide range of choices for learners. However, it has an acceptance rate of around 18% for PG courses, so you must compete for admission.

Here is a list of notable alums:

1. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

2. Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

3. Albert Bandura, Canadian-American psychologist

4. Michael Garrett Shanks, Canadian actor, writer, and director

5. Joe Clark, 16th prime minister of Canada

6. Michael Smith won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1993.

2. General admission requirements

a) Minimum aggregate of 70% in 11th and 12th  (or equivalents)

b) At least six academic/non-academic 12th courses


1. Choose what to study.

While applying to the University of British Columbia, you will have the opportunity to select the first and second-choice degrees. The degree you choose will determine the program options in your second or third year of study.

2. Write a personal profile

The personal profile is crucial for your application. It’s a chance to tell the University about your life achievements and experiences to help the University determine if you are a good fit for it.

3. Get in touch.

Contact the admission counselor to find out the process in more detail. There are two campuses of the University. You must choose the campus depending on the course you are choosing. Contact details on the University of British Columbia’s website. 

4. Attend an Interview

After contacting the University, you must attend an interview with the campus inclusion facilitator. The interview is to learn more about the aspirant’s desire and hopes after education.

5. Receive the offer.

About a month after the interview, the University will contact you to let you know about confirmation if you are selected or not.

Note- the University of British Columbia offers a variety of Master's programs like MBA, MiM, and MSC, with the first-year tuition fees starting from around 5-6 lakhs. 

I hope this helps. Do let me know your course so I can provide you with the course-specific requirements.
