Live the Experience

Meet our Students, Parents and Faculty from UBC Future Global Leaders 2018 Program

Who better to tell you about 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, you have a choice of exciting activities and helpful workshops. Workshops are designed to prepare you to succeed at university. Weekday activities include visits to the UBC Museum of Anthropology, the Beaty Museum and Nitobe Gardens. We also take you off campus and visit some of Vancouver’s best neighbourhoods, including West 4th Ave., Kitsilano Beach and Granville Island.

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. In residence, you’re just steps away from your classes, and in easy reach of beaches, forests and all the recreation you could ask for. Join evening and weekend activities that include shopping and festivals, and visits to Vancouver’s favourite attractions such as Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park and Capilano Suspension Bridge.

"I was just really interested in providing the same experience for the students that I had."
