Events for Indigenous students

Events for Indigenous students

Choosing where you want to go to university is a big decision. We understand that you want to apply to the right school, so our knowledgeable and friendly advisors are here to help you

In addition to the events that we’re offering to all students throughout the fall, Indigenous students are also invited to join our Indigenous sessions tailored to you.

Indigenous events

At our Indigenous events, you will hear about what it’s like to be a UBC student at one of our two beautiful campuses.

There are four different kinds of events on offer:


Indigenous Campus Tours

Meet an Indigenous student ambassador who will highlight their favourite locations on either of our two campuses, show you Indigenous-specific spaces, and help you navigate programs and resources for Indigenous students. After the tour, an Indigenous Recruiter Advisor will be available to answer your questions.
