UBC and Vancouver offer a great mix of people from all over the world. This leads to a very accepting, inclusive community. A wide range of cultural and spiritual associations are available if you would like to learn more about other cultures, or if you wish to stay connected to your own. Another bonus is the amazing food from all over the globe.
Our degrees are recognized world-wide, giving you great mobility in the world economy. Are you an International student hoping for Canadian work experience? No problem! International students are eligible for work permits during their studies and up to one year after graduation – and so are their spouses (including common-law partners).
