Before you start in the Experimental Medicine Graduate Program, you should inform yourself about the following:
- Study and Work Visa Application if you’re an international student.
- On-Campus and Off-Campus Housing.
- Health Care and Insurance.
- Courses offered by the Experimental Medicine Program and courses offered by other Departments of UBC.
International Students should also have a look at the International Student Development website. This is a community centre which will provide international students with useful information regarding immigration documents, employment, health insurance, or adapting to life at UBC.
When you start in our program, you will have to:
- Apply for a Campus Wide Login (CWL) account.
- Pay your tuition through the Student Service Center. You can log onto this website with your CWL account.
- Get your U-Pass.
We also advise you to:
- Attend the Grad Orientation Seminar. The date will be sent to new students by email by the Graduate Secretary, as soon as the date is set.
- Inform yourself about Awards and Scholarships, as an annual university-wide competition for several major awards (NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR and UBC Affiliated Awards Fellowship) is held soon after the beginning of the fall term. Competition is very strong, and preparing a successful application takes time. You are therefore encouraged to begin working on your applications in July or August.
