Personal Profile questions

personal profile, ubc application

Meeting UBC’s minimum general and degree-specific requirements does not guarantee that a student will receive an offer. That’s where the Personal Profile section of our online application comes in. This is a student’s chance to tell us about their life and accomplishments, and what those experiences have taught them.

See UBC’s Personal Profile questions >>

How we evaluate applications

A competitive university like UBC receives more applications than can be accommodated. We wish we could admit all qualified applicants, but we just don’t have the space.
