Notes on Eligibility

Given the wide variety of program options at the post-graduate level (some are very short duration course based, others are research-oriented or a combination of both), admissibility of a particular credential is determined on a case-by-case basis.

ECTS Credit System

3-year bachelor degrees for master's degree admission and 5-year master's degrees for doctoral degree admission are accepted at UBC. Please note that some countries may have both the old academic degrees and the new ECTS degrees.
