  1. No new PhD students in Asian Studies were accepted this year at the University of British Columbia due to lack or funding. This thread is for all those who wish to talk about and work towards receiving a refund of the application fee. The University of Columbia was in a similar position this year and not able to secure funding for new PhD students, so they did not accept applications. Be it that this decision was only made recently at UBC, I still think that it is not right for them to keep everyone's money. I think the best approach is first for everyone to request a refund via ema
  2. Hey all, Here is a forum for M.Arch applicants applying to Canadian schools. Share your results and thoughts about the process School : UBC ( 3 year M.Arch program). Background: non-architecture Good luck!
  3. I recently received admits from the University of British Columbia for a Master's in Physics, and from ETH Zurich for a Masters in Quantum Engineering. I am really happy with my options, but there are differences between them which have made this choice a tough one: At UBC, I'll be fully funded, and have also secured an additional scholarship that would entail more funding and an internship at a Canadian company working in quantum computing (QC). From what I have read online, the job prospects in physics in particular(industry or otherwise) are much better in North America than in Europe.
  4. Eagerly waiting for the decision! Wondering if anyone else has received any decision yet. I emailed the school and no reply yet. Also, did anyone get interviewed for this program? What are the chances without any interview call?
  5. Just wondering if anybody has heard back yet from UBC's School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP)? I applied to their MCRP program and was told they start getting back to admitted applicants in early March. Haven't seen any 2018 posts in the results search but I thought I may as well ask here. If not, have any of you applied to the program as well? Or former/current students who may know if I have a chance? Haha, sorry, just a bit anxious along with everyone else here. Undergrad (Political Science) GPA: 3.8 (4.33 scale) MA (Political Science) GPA: 3.7 (4.0 scale) Presentations: 4 Pu
  6. Hi everyone! I'm planning to apply to the MA in Political Science at UBC for the September 2021 intake (I've got everything ready but the three recommendation letters but that shouldn't be a problem) Here's my "stats": GPA of the last two years (BA degree): 3.73/4.0 and 3.8/4.0. My final grade was 110 cum laude which in my country (Italy) is the highest you can get TOEFL: 107/120 Extra curricular: sadly not much except for the fact I've spent a semester in China (my BA is in East Asian studies, so I want to conduct research into Asian politics at UBC as it's one of the
  7. Hi political scientists. I have been preparing my application for 2021 MA application at UBC. I was hoping some one may have some advice about what classes should I take and an evaluation for my profile. Here are my stats. Undergrad Institution: Known research university in Vancouver, Major Communication (current CGPA 3.85) Minor Political Science. Relevant courses: Pre cal (A-), Introductory Stat (A-), Communication quant research (A+), Communication qual reseach (A), Political Economy (A-) Political Science courses: Introduction (A), Introductory game theory (A+), Intro Pol qu
  8. Is there anyone who has not received the application result for the application fall 2020? Has anyone been waitedlisted?
  9. It's weird for waiting so long. I guess my chance is slim.Asking for the application progress two times, always get an official general response. What's wrong with this department......., let's be quick, the result is not that matter.
  10. Hey! Has anyone here applied to UBC IRES for their Ph.D. program? Have you heard back?
  11. Hi, I would like to know if there are any current grad students from UBC Vancouver here. I will be starting my PhD in linguistics at UBC in fall 20, and would love to get in touch with the current/upcoming students beforehand! Cheers! -Aaditya
  12. A thread for political science and global affairs applicants 2020! A place to share worries, post decisions, and wish each other good luck!
  13. Thread for MA Political Science applicants at Canadian universities! Let's wait it out together.
  14. Hi. I've received admits from University of British Columbia, Vancouver and McGill University, Montreal. Both these are funded masters programs. I'm unable to choose between the two! I like the McGill research topic better. The stipend value is also greater here. Plus Montreal is much more cheaper than Vancouver. However, Vancouver is an amazing city to be in and I wouldn't want to miss it(?). Also, not being a francophone might hurt me in Montreal. Any inputs from seniors would be appreciated. For UBC: MASc in Mechanical Engineering For McGill: MEngg (thesis) in Biological
  15. Is Political science Masters program in UBC strong??
  16. hi! I was admitted to both University of Toronto and University of British Columbia for a master of architecture this fall 2019. I need some opinions from objective outside sources to help me make my decision! Which do you think is a better school? For reference, UBC is offering me a semesters worth of advance credits and the tuition is nearly 10K less than U of T. BUT U of T is a more internationally renowned school, is where I did my undergrad and is close to my home. They gave me an entrance scholarship but not enough to cover the 10K difference in tuition, and no advanced placeme

  18. Hi all, I officially committed to UBC today for my PhD in Geography. As I'm an international student from the United States and won't have any close family or friends in the Vancouver area, it would be great to start building a network of ALL UBC Masters and PhD students. Comment here to connect and share what you'll be doing at UBC. This would also be a great place to share housing, neighborhood, activities and such. A bit about me: Married, have a dog, enjoy hiking and the outdoors, looking forward to Vancouver coffee culture. Cheers, C
  19. Hello, Any response from UBC English department yet? The wait is becoming unbearable!
  20. Has anyone heard from UBC Sauder? Anybody done an interview? Any results?
  21. Almost ready to join UBC MDS program for September 2019. (Waiting for Michigan Ann Arbor!) Anyone else joining UBC? Would love to connect. P.S - International Student
  22. Hi! I have accepted an offer from UBCO for fall of 2018. I would love to connect with some other inbound students. I did not see a topic for the Okanagan campus, so I thought I would start one up! I will be new to the area, so it would be wonderful to know some great people when I get there. Please feel free to contact me here or via PM. I would be thrilled to chat with currently attending students as well. Thank you!
  23. Hi everyone! I am coming into political science with a global health background, so I'm still familiarizing myself with the dynamics of the political science job market and inside info on different schools. I've been accepted to the University of British Columbia, Northwestern University, University of California Irvine and University of Southern California. Like a lot of people, I'm still waiting to hear back from the University of Toronto. Right now I am deciding between UBC and NWU. If I get into U of T then I'll need to decide between UBC, U of T and NWU, because those three are my to
  24. Hey guys, So I applied to the University of British Columbia (UBC), McGill University, University of Toronto, and York University (all in Canada) for my PhD in Political Science. Has anyone else applied and heard back from them?? I'm really anxious to hear back!
