International students: join us for our US Thanksgiving event

If you are an international student, please join us on our Vancouver campus for US Thanksgiving to get a glimpse of what you can look forward to as an undergraduate student.

During this day of activities, current UBC students, staff, and advisors will tell you about what the university has to offer and why UBC is consistently ranked among the top 40 research universities in the world.

Event highlights

• Lunch with UBC students, staff, and advisors who can answer questions about student life and the programs you are interested in.

It’s a wonderful time of year to visit our campuses – the temperatures have cooled down and the leaves have started turning to create a rich, colourful landscape. If you’re in Vancouver or Kelowna and have questions you’d like to ask us about applying to UBC, feel free to stop by the Welcome Centre in Brock Hall (on our Vancouver campus) during our regular hours, or drop by University Centre Room 222 (on our Okanagan campus) on Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm or Thursdays from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Visit us in an online info session

We know that not all of you will be able to visit us in person, but that doesn’t mean we can’t answer your questions. We have plenty of online information sessions coming up for domestic and international students to help you prepare for your application to UBC. These sessions will require an account, so take a few minutes to sign up for one if you haven’t already done so.

Whether you plan on joining us in person or virtually, we look forward to connecting with you!
