Graduate Student Orientation 2020

Connect with your peers, learn about being a graduate student, and discover UBC Okanagan.

Graduate Orientation plays an important role in helping you start your studies off strong. Although orientation may look a little different this year, the focus remains the same – providing you with the information you need.

Orientation is open to all graduate students who will be starting their programs in September 2020 and all graduate students who began their programs in January 2020 and May 2020.

In response to social distancing measures, this year’s Graduate Student Orientation will be hosted online. There are two main components for this year’s orientation; UBC 501 and Graduate Student Orientation Week.

If you have questions about orientation, please email gradadmin.ubco@ubc.ca.

UBC 501

 

UBC 501 is a self-guided, online orientation designed to help prepare you for your arrival at UBC Okanagan. UBC 501 is made up of five modules and can be accessed anywhere, anytime with an internet connection. Each module takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. The modules cover topics such as graduate student expectations, working with your supervisor, familiarizing yourself with Kelowna and the Okanagan, history and traditions of UBC Okanagan, and important on-campus resources to help you along the way.
