Located in the spectacular landscape of Northern British Columbia, UNBC has been recognized for outstanding undergraduate and graduate learning opportunities that explore health, culture, business and the environment. Canada’s Maclean’s magazine has ranked UNBC in the top 3 of the country’s best small universities for ten consecutive years. The diversity of our student, staff and faculty has become a celebrated strength placing us in the top 5% of universities worldwide by Time Higher Education.
Guided by our motto “En Cha Huna” interpreted from the First Nations Dalkeh language as “respecting all forms of life,” our educational approach is inclusive and collaborative. As one of Canada’s top 50 research-intensive universities, we are proud to create a culture of innovative thinking for students at all levels of study. UNBC offers a full range of programs from Bachelors, Masters, to Ph.D.
Student life at UNBC is vibrant with over forty student-led organizations. Join clubs such as Fencing, Drama, Anime or create your own! Our busy Student Union Society organizes popular socials celebrating Back To School, New Year’s Eve and more. 1 in 4 our students receive a financial award from the $3 million in available scholarships and bursaries contributed by generous donors.
For almost thirty years, small class sizes, hands-on learning, and fantastic outdoor recreation have made UNBC the top choice for post-secondary education.
