Live the Experience

Meet our UBC Future Global Leaders Students, Parents and Faculty

Who better to tell you about UBC Future Global Leaders than our students and monitors? Listen and read about their unique experiences and why they chose UBC Future Global Leaders. Hear from a parent, and meet a UBC professor.

Live the full university experience

Experience daily student life, inside and outside of class

After morning classes, all students have a choice of helpful workshops and exciting activities. Workshops are designed to prepare you to succeed at university.  Weekday activities include visits to campus attractions, and select off-campus locations in around Vancouver or Kelowna.

Choose to stay in a student residence and live the full university experience. Eat and socialize with other students, and get to know your monitors. Whether your choose UBC Vancouver or UBC Okanagan, in residence you’re just steps away from your classes, and in easy reach of campus amenities and all the recreation you could ask for.  Join evening and weekend activities that include shopping, festivals, and visits to Vancouver’s or Kelowna’s favourite attractions.
