Destination UBC Aboriginal Student Welcome


Because of the the global concerns around group gatherings due to COVID-19, Destination UBC Aboriginal Student Welcome at UBC Vancouver has been cancelled. We are still looking forward to meeting you, so please join us for our online Virtual Indigenous Destination UBC instead.


If you are a First Nations, Métis, or Inuit high school student in Canada, Destination UBC is your chance to visit UBC Vancouver and connect with the Aboriginal community before you arrive in the fall. During this weekend-long event, we’ll give you advice on transitioning to university life, and connect you with current students in your faculty or degree who can share helpful insider tips.

US Thanksgiving

Our US Thanksgiving event provides an excellent opportunity for students currently studying in the United States to connect with current students, staff, and advisors to learn about undergraduate academic programs, admissions information, scholarship opportunities, and more. You’ll also get a taste of what you can look forward to as an undergraduate student inside and outside the classroom.
