Established in 1908, UBC is British Columbia’s oldest institution of higher learning and one of the best universities in Canada along with McGill University and University of Toronto. The university ranked 30th in the US News Rankings for the top universities in the world in 2020, and is also ranked amongst the top 20 public universities worldwide.
The university has two main campuses. The Vancouver campus occupies 420 acres of maintained land. It is near several beaches and has views of the North Shore mountains. It is known as the most beautiful campus in North America. After more than a hundred years of development, it has become one of the top comprehensive research universities.
As of 2017, eight Nobel laureates, 71 Rhodes scholars, 65 Olympians, eight Fellows in both American Academy of Arts & Sciences and the Royal Society, and 208 Fellows to the Royal Society of Canada have been affiliated with UBC. Three Canadian prime ministers, including Canada's first female prime minister Kim Campbell and current prime minister Justin Trudeau have been educated at UBC.
In order to establish a platform where outstanding Chinese students can collide with minds from top universities in the world, in the springtime of 2019, USIEA has built a collaboration with University of British Columbia. Qualified students will be selected from universities across China by USIEA to go study in UBC. Students will receive a certificate from UBC, and even will have an opportunity to gain a recommendation letter from professors as a bonus to their further studies application. Students will also be able to expand their connections, open their minds and make the right decisions about their future.
