LFS Events & Visits

If you’ve ever dreamed of helping remote communities get equal access to water, feel compelled to stand up for animal rights, or inspired to share your passion for a sustainable food system with the next generation, the Faculty of Land and Food Systems (LFS) may be the right Faculty for you.

To learn more about LFS and to see if it’s the right fit for you, we invite you to visit beautiful Vancouver and check out an on campus event for prospective students. Our Student Advisors also visit cities to talk about LFS; see if they’re coming to your community.

Participate in “A Taste of LFS” – an interactive, hands-on tour of LFS-themed activities! Lead by some of our outstanding faculty members and their grad students, you will get to:

  • Explore research in animal welfare, including how the study of animal behaviour can improve the welfare of animals in human care
  • Identify the process & practicality of choosing vitamin-rich foods for human health
  • Discover what sensory evaluation means in food science, through a fun & confusing taste experiment that will keep you guessing!
  • Learn how the Faculty of Land and Food Systems is working to protect our soil, water and air, to manage biodiversity & shape a more sustainable, food-secure future

You will meet current LFS undergrad students who will share more about their experiences, and why they love what they study!

Lastly, Academic Advisors will be available to answer your advising and admission-related questions. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to actually be a student in LFS, you’ll find out at LFS Fall Preview Day – we look forward to seeing you there!

US Thanksgiving Event @ UBC

It may be a holiday south of the border, but it’s business as usual up at UBC, and students studying in American schools are welcome to join the “US Thanksgiving Event” on campus hosted by our colleagues in International Student Recruitment and Advising. Sarah, Academic Advisor for International Students, will be at the lunch so you can connect with her and ask any questions you may have about LFS programs and experiences.

When: Friday, November 23, 2018

In Your Community

We’ve met with students in San Jose, Seattle, Portland, Toronto and Calgary. What a fall! We can’t be everywhere, but our colleagues from the UBC recruitment teams can be (well, almost!). If you are interested in an LFS program for your post-secondary studies, we encourage you to check out the list of visits UBC representatives will be making in cities around the world here. They can answer your questions and help connect you with LFS Student Services for more, if needed.

Or, email us in LFS Student Services with your questions at any time – we’re always happy to help!
