International applicants

The diversity that international students bring to SALA is part of what makes our school such an exciting place to study. For the most part, international applicants follow the same admissions procedures as all other applicants. However, there are some differences and additional information that you should be aware of.

Tuition and fees differ for international students. Please refer to the UBC Academic Calendar for undergraduate and graduate tuition fees.

I’ve applied. Now what?

Undergraduate applicants can check their application status online via the Student Service Centre. Graduate applicants can check using the Graduate Studies Online Application. Make sure to submit all required documents or tests before the application deadline.

If you intend to live in on-campus housing, you should apply as early as possible. You can find details on the Student Housing website.

We will communicate admission decisions and important updates by email in March and April.
