Make friends

Jump Start will help you connect with campus life, learn about opportunities, and connect with other students. It’s a great way to make friends before classes start through fun social activities and academic workshops.

Learning at UBC

Our academic success workshops are designed to welcome you to your program. You will learn about support resources for a successful transition to university, understand expectations and policies specific to UBC, and connect with faculty members, staff, and other students who are available to help you throughout your time at UBC.

Get organized

We get it—there are a lot of things to take care of before starting university, like buying textbooks and getting organized. You may also want to explore work and volunteer opportunities and find activities that interest you. By taking care of the essentials early, you’ll have more time to focus on what matters later.
