The Power of New Thinking:

Teaching and Learning at UBC

Global perspectives. Innovative exchanges. Life-altering discoveries. New knowledge.

How do you describe the experience of learning at UBC? The myriad of ways UBC students learn, and the path they take to new thinking, is as unique as they are. The faculty who walk with them on that path of discovery are equally open to collaboration and non-traditional ways of exploration and teaching about the world we live in. Together, learning ignites bold conversations, scientific permutations and entrepreneurial solutions that change the world.

Find out what the freedom to pursue open thinking leads to at UBC.
