Opportunities (virtual) to gather information from universities, colleges and other post-secondary programs across BC:

For those students who have not yet taken advantage of our fairs, please share with your students that they can still participate. I have attached an updated schedule of upcoming fairs, and based on our experience to date, we do have the capacity to meet with more students.

Please also ensure that your students understand that during these times, the fair is LIVE and they can connect directly with the representatives of 29 universities and colleges and attend live presentations by many of these institutions. These presentations are scheduled at 15 minutes after the hour during these live event times.

 

The link to register and participate is: https://postsecondarybcvirtualfair.easyvirtualfair.com/

 

University and College reps are only available during these live hours, but students can return to the Virtual Fair at any time later to view videos and download information resources. Your students who have already participated can also return at any time to access these resources.

I should also note that on our PSBC website, under the EVENTS listings, there are also a number of interesting online information sessions about specific programs, being hosted by member institutions, and encourage your students to regularly check our website for these new opportunities.

We are Alia Hamieh and Andy Wan, assistant professors of Mathematics at UNBC. We are organizing UNBC Mathematical Science Discovery Week, a summer school aimed at students between grades 10 and 12 from Prince George high schools. This one-week event will take place from August 3rd to 7th and will be hosted virtuallyThe main objective for this summer school is to provide an encouraging and collaborative environment for a diverse group of high school students to explore areas in Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics that are not normally part of their regular high school curricula. 

Attached to this email is a promotional poster and an information sheet about the event. You might already have this information since we have sent it to your high school principal at the beginning of April. We hope that you could help us introduce this opportunity to as many students as possible.

 If this event is of interest to your students, please circulate the attached promotional poster within your high school. This event is completely free for students. All that is required for participating students is a computer and internet connection capable of video conferencing. 

To register the students who have expressed interest, please compile the list of interested students (up to 6) from your high school and email it to either one of us at: alia.hamieh@unbc.ca or andy.wan@unbc.ca. Please register by May 15, 2021 to ensure availability for your students to this event. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you so much for your time and consideration in promoting this event. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting your students this summer!

Starting on May 17, we welcome all future students (including those who have applied and those who have yet to apply), high school counselors, parents and guardians to attend a series of events designed to introduce them to UNBC. We encourage students to register for one or more events by visiting [unbc.ca/exploreUNBC]Explore UNBC webpage. We have a number of exciting events planned such as Meet Your Program, Learn About Student Life and Supports, a Virtual Campus Tour and much more! Take a look at the full calendar of events:

Admissions
Undergraduate Admissions If you are looking to apply for a post-secondary certificate, diploma or Bachelor's degree, you'll be applying for Undergraduate admissions. If you are currently in high school, attending college or university and want to transfer, or even just take some courses, this admission information is for you.
www.unbc.ca
 
Attached is a pamphlet that you can provide to interested parents/students/staff regarding UNBC Awards & Financial Aid Information and the upcoming UNBC Award Competition deadlines, or feel free to forward a portion of this email along to parents/students.
 
As always if students miss applying for admission by the December 2021 or March 1st, 2022, they can still apply for admission right up to the start of the September 2021 Semester… but it is best to apply for admission earlier so they can also be considered/apply for UNBC awards and be admitted early enough to register for the courses they want.
