Applications are currently ongoing for the Major Entrance Scholarships (IMES)  to exceptional international students at University of British Columbia. This scholarship is mainly for undergraduate studies.

The University of British Columbia is a higher institution established in 1908 and located in the city of Vancouver. It is the oldest city in British Columbia. The institutions first degree was awarded in 1916. The institution has only three faculties as at 1920 with the male students more than the female students. As at 1944, the institution has a population of 2974 and rose to 9374 in 1947 and this made the university facility not enough for the students so the management had to use the army and Airforce camps as classrooms.

In a recent year, 23 per cent of students at the Vancouver campus and around 13 per cent at the Okanagan campus were international.

University housing is guaranteed for first-year UBC undergraduates, and newly admitted international students who are second-year undergrads receive housing priority too. Housing is also available for returning undergraduate and graduate students.
