Apply to Graduate Programs


If you wish to be considered by a program that accepts late applications, please fill out a paper application, and submit the completed application with the required supporting application materials to graduate-admissions@unbc.ca.

You will need to contact three people to provide reference letters or assessment reports for you.  When a paper application is submitted, UNBC does not e-mail the referees to request references.  The reference letters or assessment reports must be submitted directly from the person who wrote the reference. They can submit by e-mail (from a professional or company e-mail address as we cannot accept a reference from Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) or fax  (250.960.6330) or they can mail or courier the reference.

Accepting Late Applications for January 2018; the latest date to apply is October 15th, 2017 unless otherwise noted.  PLEASE NOTE:  Master of Engineering (MEng) accepts applications on an ongoing basis.
