Admission Requirements

Application for admission to the Bachelor of Sustainability program must be made through Enrolment Services.

The program will only admit students to the Winter Session. Students admitted to the Winter Session can elect to register only for courses beginning in January; however, this is not recommended. Starting classes in January may limit course options and may lengthen the time it takes to complete degree requirements. Students applying to the program should be available to start in September of the year admitted.

Admission from Secondary School

The admission criteria specific to secondary school applicants to the Bachelor of Sustainability program are detailed in Admissions.

Admission from Post-Secondary Study

Individuals who have completed courses through an alternate post-secondary institution can apply for entry to year one of the Bachelor of Sustainability program and must meet competitive admission requirements for entry. Once admitted, applicants may be considered for promotion to year two of the program only if they are recognized as having already substantially completed year one core and concentration course requirements.

Transfer from Another UBC Program

Individuals who have completed courses through another UBC program can apply for entry to year one of the Bachelor of Sustainability program and must meet competitive admission requirements. Once admitted, applicants may be considered for promotion to year two of the program only if they are recognized as having already substantially completed year one core and concentration course requirements.

Admission is not available into years three and four of the program.
