  • UBC: Personal Profile Applicants to UBC are evaluated on a broad range of criteria. While UBC is looking for academically strong students, their answers to the Profile questions will demonstrate their preparedness for university studies. The Personal Profile allows them to tell UBC about the things that are important to them: significant achievements, what they have learned from their experiences, and challenges they’ve overcome. Along with their academic achievements, the profile will be used to determine their admissibility to UBC’s undergraduate programs. There is no separate application for entrance scholarships and awards so the online application is the only opportunity for them to tell UBC about themselves. This is their opportunity to shine!
