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 decide whether UBC is the right community for you.

As well as the region-specific events that we’re offering to all students throughout the fall, Indigenous students are also invited to join our Indigenous Recruiter advisors for sessions tailored to you.

 

Indigenous-specific events

 At our Indigenous-specific 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 from October to December:

 

All about UBC for Indigenous students

Join our Indigenous Recruitment team for a one-hour introduction to UBC. You’ll discover what it’s like to be an Indigenous student at UBC, learn about the admissions requirements, and find out how to apply. The Indigenous Recruitment team will also provide details on UBC’s Indigenous communities and spaces, the resources and services available at our two campuses, and the funding and awards that you can access. Your parents or guardians are also welcome to attend!

To register: email us at indigenous.recruitment@ubc.ca. Let us know your full name and which event you’d like to attend.

 

Indigenous UBC application workshop

Find out about UBC’s application process for Indigenous students with this hands-on workshop. Our Indigenous Recruiter advisors will walk you through a demonstration of UBC’s online application, and provide tips on applying for UBC’s Indigenous-specific awards. You’ll also learn about the programs and services for Indigenous students found on both campuses. Your parents or guardians are also welcome to attend!

To register: email us at indigenous.recruitment@ubc.ca. Let us know your full name and which event you’d like to attend.

Campus tours

At UBC Vancouver, we offer Indigenous campus tours (either in-person tours or live virtual tours) that are led by our friendly and knowledgeable Indigenous student ambassadors who will highlight Indigenous-specific spaces, services, and resources. After the tour, an Indigenous student advisor will be available to answer your questions. At our Okanagan campus, we offer Indigenous-specific group tours for schools and at special events throughout the year.

If you would like to register for a campus tour or connect with an Indigenous advisor, please email indigenous.tours@ubc.ca.

Indigenous introduction to UBC for students in the Lower Mainland

UBC is also offering Indigenous-specific events for students in school districts within the Lower Mainland (Vancouver and surrounding areas). Please email Kristen Davis for more information on the events and how to sign up.

 

We’re looking forward to meeting you!
