UBC stories

A love of the outdoors created opportunities for Nina. Choosing UBC Forestry, she is now exploring the relationships between people and forests, as well as the plants, animals, air, and water in forested areas. During her time at UBC she’s conducted research on Douglas-fir and Western larch seedlings, climbed her first mountain, taken her first dip in the Pacific Ocean, and will graduate ready for an outdoor career of her choice: "You get to experience more than a degree at UBC – that’s my favourite thing. You have the opportunity to never, ever be bored."

Reminder: When to upload your documents

If you haven't got your documents ready to upload at the time that you apply to UBC, don’t worry – you’re not required to yet. Your supporting documents don't need to be uploaded until after you’ve submitted your application. The deadline to upload those documents will differ depending on whether you’re a Canadian or international student, what province you’re studying in, whether you’re a transfer student, and the curriculum you’re learning.
