Student life: Explore the University of BC

Are you thinking about going to university? Come see what it's like to be a UBC student!

Join Peter for a tour around the University of British Columbia campus. You'll check out the different buildings, and learn about the places students go to learn, work, and play.

Then, if you'd like, go to one of the classes Peter teaches! Sit in the lecture hall, listen to him speaking and see the slides he uses, and see other students around you.

Peter has worked at UBC as an employee and is working on a degree right now. He can answer questions you have about university in general, UBC specifically, and everything in between.
