Our graduate advisors are here to help you.
Please reach out to us using our prospective student advising form below with any questions you might have about our programs or review additional resources the University of British Columbia has available for graduate students.
Prospective graduate student advising form
Please provide details about yourself and your research interests. You should receive a response within a few days.
Please note that we may delay answering forms submitted in September and January. The start of our academic terms is traditionally the busiest time for our office, and we must prioritize time-sensitive registration/enrolment requests from UBC students.
Please review the information on our graduate programs pages before submitting a form.
MA program transfers
We recognize that graduate students may wish to change programs within the department mid-stream, in order to realize their academic goals better.
To change programs, you must make a written request to the Director of Graduate Studies, providing a rationale for the transfer. The transfer will be decided by a majority vote of the Graduate Committee. You must submit your application before April in the second year of study. Applications will not be approved if the student has failed any necessary component of their current program.
