Congratulations on being accepted to UBC! The community of scholars that you are joining is one of the world’s finest, committed to discovering and sharing knowledge, and to tackling the challenges that face our world. We are fortunate to enjoy this exceptional scholarly environment in one of the most beautiful and livable cities anywhere.
I encourage you to fully engage with the university community - be inspired and learn from the amazing people here, including those outside your area of expertise, and get involved in the many activities UBC has to offer. I also invite you to explore the Graduate Pathways to Success (GPS) section of this website for tools and resources to help you make the most of your time as a UBC graduate student.
On behalf of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the more than 2,000 outstanding faculty and 10,000 graduate students at UBC I would like to extend my best wishes for a truly fulfilling graduate education experience.
