The University of British Columbia (UBC) is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world and recently recognized as North America’s most international university.
A world class centre for teaching, learning and research, UBC is a place where innovative ideas are nurtured in a globally connected research community, with unparalleled opportunities to learn and discover in unique ways.
Surrounded by the beauty of the West Coast, UBC’s location inspires a pioneering mentality: openness to fresh, bold new ways of thinking. More than 400 hectares in size, the stunning campus is surrounded by forest on three sides, an ocean on the fourth, with a breathtaking view of the mountains. The campus has been located on this site for most of its 100 year history; a location that is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) People.
A national leader in areas as diverse as community service learning, sustainability and research commercialization, UBC is globally aware and globally respected – attracting over $658 million per year in research funding through 8900+ projects and grants.
