UBC is the most internationally diverse institution in the continent receiving 15% foreign student population from 140 countries over the world each year. UBC is an outstanding place that caters both inside and outside the classroom. With a wide range of recreational, social, and cultural activities, athletics, arts, and even leisure, there's always something for the students. Exhilarating annual events, The Welcome Back BBQ, The First Week, and The Year-end Block Party are some year-round student council rituals. Formerly established in 1908, the Vancouver campus is over a century old and situated in one of the most beautiful locales, however, it's just 30 minutes away from the hustle of downtown. Whereas, the Okanagan Campus is an intimate education hub embracing innovative and continuously upgrading curriculums in 9 diverse streams. The largest Canadian academic Library with 21 branches and divisions is one of the major attractions for geeks!
