Eye-opening but money sucking school.

Tips: Internal fees is too high, become permanent resident first and then go to this school. Very eye-opening for middle-class students like me because I used to think that very intelligent and brilliant students study here but then you get to know that you are as brilliant and can be more brilliant than them - they just have the money. You develop very high confidence in yourself.

Likes (Permanent Immigration): If you will come to UBC, it will be either for Bachelor or Masters - in both cases, you will earn good points for educati...

Fun learning and research experience

Tips: The weather is not that different. People are fun and helpful. If you're coming here for research-based programs, you don't have to worry about student debts, since you're given plenty of stipend from your supervisor as well as international awards.

Likes (Public transportation): As for students in thesis-based programs, it's easy to make friends with students in your lab. So you don't feel alone. Lots of events are organized, including community events. How much time you want to spend on campus depends on you, since there are...

Life of a student after going abroad is challenging.

Tips: There wasn’t a big paradigm shift when it came to culture. Especially the campus life, the reason being there are students from all around the globe and it is a mixed demographic. I’m more than satisfied with my university & my course, although Canada in general as a country is a bit challenging and not so welcoming for outsiders.

Best engineering and business program in Canada.

Tips: Students joining this college should know that it has high fee structure. Vibrant campus community and abundance of opportunities to grow. It is always rainy here but it gives a lot of exposure. High research output and supportive faculty. There is a huge campus. Good food options are there with high living cost. It is one of the best engineering and business program in Canada.

Likes (Public transportation): UBC is one of the major transit hubs of Vancouver making it accessible from any part around the greater Vancouver area....

Value for money! It gives memories, experience and opportunities.

There is also a good advantage of developing your network here since there are always new guest lecturers, workshops, seminars, etc. happening on campus.

Likes (Value for money): No doubt this university is costly...

It is a valuable and enriching experience.

Tips: It has been an eye opening experience with a lot of exposure and experiences. You can expect a lot of interaction and make sure to prioritise your academic commitments. For housing, it is better to opt for a setting that is more convenient for your classes.

Multicultural place, highly recommended.

Tips: It is really easy to assimilate. There are not many jobs in computer science. I am very satisfied with the university and the country. The people here are very friendly people. It is multicultural and diverse. No racism, sexism etc. British Columbia is beautiful. Overall, I recommend UBC wholeheartedly.
