ADVISING TIPS – You may be interested in UBC’s Science Co-operative Education (Co-op) program. Co-op combines semesters of classroom learning with semesters of paid work experience. For more details refer to the UBC Co-op site – Make sure you know about the three first-year program options for Science students. These programs are the Standard Science Program, Coordinated Science and Science One. For details check here.
– The key to your degree planning is making use of the many advising resources that UBC offers. A great place to start is the UBC Science site. Here you can get help with planning your degree, career, finances, and more. – When talking to a UBC advisor, make sure you have a year-by-year plan in place to meet your degree requirements. – Although UBC offers many resources to help you plan your degree, don’t forget the final responsibility for meeting all faculty and program requirements rests with you.
