Applying to course-based and professional programs

Date & Time

Wednesday, 22 November 2023 - 5:00pm


At UBC we have approximately 100 different course-based and professional programs. These programs typically have a set program length, are cohort-based, and as the name suggests involve working through set course curricula. These programs do not have an in-depth research component. However, the depth and sophistication of your work will be a step up from what you did as an undergraduate.

In this webinar we focus on applying to course-based programs and provide advice on making your application as strong as possible.

This session will cover:

  • Difference between course-based and research-based graduate programs.
  • Differences in the application process for course-based vs research-based programs.
  • Writing a statement of interest for course-based and professional programs
  • References – What we look for and who you should ask
  • CV tips
  • Interview tips
  • Q&A

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is for anyone who is interested in applying to a course-based or professional graduate program and wants to gain some advice and insight on putting together a strong application
