The University of British Columbia - Okanagan



The University of British Columbia has a reputation for excellence that is as spectacular as its two campuses located in the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver. Established in 1908, UBC is now one of the world's top 40 universities, and a North American leader in teaching and research. Its innovative programs and faculty serve as a magnet that attracts some of the brightest students from across Canada and around the world.

The UBC Okanagan Campus in Kelowna, British Columbia, offers you the opportunity to study in a smaller, more intimate setting while still realizing the benefits of receiving a UBC degree recognized around the globe. Our new and expanding campus offers admission guarantees to a variety of programs with generous scholarship and travel incentives for those coming to the Okanagan from schools across Canada.

Situated in the heart of the spectacular Okanagan Valley, UBC Okanagan is surrounded by lush pine forests, arid desert, and mountainous alpine, making it a four season destination for hiking, biking, snow sports, and more. The campus is also within reach of Kelowna, a city of over 100,000 people, that has all the amenities, opportunities, and diversity you'd expect in a big city and small enough to feel manageable.
