The Faculty accepts students with varying educational preparation: (1) following graduation from secondary school or (2) post-secondary transfer students. We expect an interest in this program from mid-career environmental, forestry, and resource management professionals.
Students entering from secondary school must have met the University entrance requirements. The minimum academic qualification for admission is secondary school graduation from a recognized secondary school, including the following Grade 11 and 12 courses: English 12 or English 12 First Peoples; English 11 or English 11 First Peoples; Principles of Mathematics 11, Pre-Calculus 11, or Foundations of Mathematics 12; any course which satisfies the Social Studies 11 BC/YT graduation requirement; at least one approved Science 11 (Biology 11 is recommended); and an approved Language 11. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission in the event that the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces. Under UBC’s Aboriginal Admissions Policy, applicants who identify as Aboriginal may be considered even if they do not meet the admission cut-off set by the faculty. They must meet the minimum of 70% for first-year programs or have a grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale from a recognized post-secondary institution. Applicants must also satisfy the program pre-requisites.
