IB certificate courses
To be eligible for admission to UBC, you must successfully complete an academic high school curriculum, including both general admission and degree-specific requirements. IB certificate courses (both Standard and Higher Level) can be used for admission in conjunction with another high school curriculum.
Initial admission decisions are based on interim grades as reported by your high school. Once your final IB results are available, we will use them to confirm your admission decision and any first-year credit you may be eligible for.
UBC recognizes the IB enriched secondary school program. To be assessed for first-year credit(s), you must contact the IBO and have your official results submitted to UBC electronically (UBC’s institution code is 000087).
