International Students

In the Graduate Program in Neuroscience, around 30% of all graduate students are international. We support our international students every step of the way by creating an environment that allows them to connect and focus in a diverse and inclusive learning community. We acknowledge the difficulty in obtaining competitive external funding for our international students and look forward to connecting with you and help you find funding opportunities that might work for you.

Entering Canada

Please note that in order to enter Canada, a “Student Authorization” issued by a Canadian Consular or Immigration Office is required, and that in order to apply for a Student Authorization you will require not only a UBC letter of acceptance and a valid passport, but also evidence of adequate funds for your tuition, family maintenance, and travel to and from Canada. Any student qualified to register for a program will be required, in addition, to have approved medical and hospital insurance.
