Step 1: Submit your application to UBC

Complete your application at you.ubc.ca, and choose the UBC BA as your first choice of program.

You must choose the UBC BA as your first choice of program to ensure that you are eligible for entrance scholarships as an applicant to the UBC Sciences Po Dual Degree program.

The UBC application includes a personal profile. We encourage you to use the personal profile to show your interests, background, and readiness for study in the subject areas highlighted by the UBC Sciences Po Dual Degree program. In addition to admission to the Dual Degree program, you will be considered automatically for UBC’s regular BA program. You must submit a separate application to Sciences Po if you wish to be considered for the Sciences Po BA program.

Applicants who have Canadian citizenship are encouraged to submit their UBC online application by the Major Entrance Scholarship deadline if they wish to be considered for UBC Major Entrance Scholarships. The supplemental application can be submitted at a later date as long as it is received prior to the specified deadline.

Applicants must submit both the online UBC application and the supplemental application by January 8, 2019.

Step 2: Submit your supplemental application to the Dual Degree

Once you have completed Step 1 and submitted your UBC online application, you will then need to submit a supplemental application online at sciencespo.ubc.ca.

The supplemental application includes submitting personal information, a written response, CV, and academic transcripts from the last two years. You will also be asked to indicate the regional Sciences Po campus that you would like to study at, and your preferred interview dates and location.

To begin your supplemental application, click the “Apply Now” button above. Applicants must have a UBC campus-wide log in (CWL) in order to log in to the application form, and must have an 8-digit UBC student number in order to proceed. Applicants who do not submit a supplemental application will not be considered for admission to the Dual BA program.

Applicants must submit both the online UBC application and supplemental application by January 8, 2019.

Step 3: Submit your required documents to UBC Admissions

In order to complete the admission process, all UBC applicants must submit their required documents to UBC by the designated deadlines. Applicants to the UBC Sciences Po program must send required documents directly to UBC Admissions. You will be asked to send copies of your transcripts to both UBC Admissions and to the UBC Sciences Po Dual Degree separately. This allows us to consider you simultaneously for both the regular BA at UBC and the Dual Degree.

I’ve submitted my application to UBC and the Dual Degree supplemental application. Now what?

Once both parts of your application have been received, you will be assessed simultaneously for the regular UBC BA and the Dual Degree with Sciences Po. Applicants are responsible for submitting required documents to UBC Admissions to ensure they will continue to be assessed for both degree programs.

Successful applicants will be invited for an interview with the UBC Sciences Po Dual Degree Admissions committee. All applicants will be notified by mid-February if they have been invited for an interview.
