You’re Invited to the UBC Chat-a-thon

If you’re an international student or Canadian living abroad and you have been admitted to UBC for 2023 you’re invited to the UBC Chat-a-thon!

What is the UBC Chat-a-thon?

The UBC Chat-a-thon is a two-week long virtual event where you will have the chance to connect with other students, faculties, and UBC advisors about programs and general UBC questions through a text-based live chat. Each session will include a Dean’s, Associate Dean’s, or director’s kick-off, a prize giveaway, and an opportunity to chat with advisors and specific faculties.


Why should you go to the UBC Chat-a-thon?

Over the course of the events, you’ll get the insider perspective as you hear directly from your advisors and start building your community early by connecting with your new classmates.
