THE World ranking

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a global centre for teaching, learning and research, consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world and recently recognized as North America?s most international university. Since 1915, the university, Tuum Est (It is Yours), has been a declaration of its commitment to attracting and supporting those who have the drive to shape a better world. As a result, UBC students, faculty and staff continue to embrace innovation and challenge the status quo, placing us at the forefront of discovery, learning and engagement. UBC encourages bold thinking, curiosity and initiative, so student can realize their greatest potential.

As one of the world?s top research universities, the University of British Columbia has created positive change at home and abroad for more than a century. Today its two major campuses in Vancouver and the Okanagan, attract, nurture and transform more than 65,000 students from Canada and 140 countries around the world. UBC offers more than 60,000 undergraduate and graduate students an unrivalled choice of degree programs on its two campuses and affiliated teaching hospitals. It provides a wide range of choices for learners at all stages of their careers, and with commitment to student engagement and success.

Student life at UBC is created by enthusiasm, curiosity, and a willingness to discover. The Vancouver and Okanagan campuses provide a diverse range of cultural, recreational and social activities for students at UBC. With so many choices, students can learn new skills or sports, discover talents they never knew they had and make friendships that will create memories for a lifetime.

The eclectic is celebrated at UBC. Exploring and broadening your horizons through the diverse cultural offerings on both campuses is an important part of a rewarding student life. Cultural expression shows up in different ways for everyone so try seeing a show, stepping into a gallery for a student art show or joining a friend for a walk through one of its world-famous gardens.

The UBC Thunderbirds and the Okanagan?s Heat Varsity programs offer a wide range of sports to participate in or attend at any of the seven Varsity facilities on the Vancouver campus or three on the Okanagan campus including the new Hangar Fitness and Wellness centre.

Student clubs at UBC have been growing strong since the first Glee club was started in 1915. There are now 370 clubs available to students, so there is a club for nearly everyone?s interests. Getting involved in clubs or recreation gives students a sense of community and offers a place for new friendships and connections.

UBC?s two main campuses are situated in Vancouver and in Kelowna in the Okanagan Valley. Located 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Vancouver campus is a spectacular location that is a ?must-see? for any visitor to the city ? where snow-capped mountains meet ocean, and breath-taking vistas greets around at every corner. Whereas the Okanagan campus is an intimate learning community embracing bold new ways of thinking that attract exceptional students and faculty.
