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 Academic Advisors also visit cities to talk about LFS; see if we’re coming to your community.
We don’t have any events specifically for prospective students at this time, but we encourage prospective and newly-admitted students to join a UBC Campus Tour, and reach out to LFS Student Services to request a coordinated appointment with an Academic Advisor if you have any questions – we’d love to see you when you come out to campus this summer!
In Your Community
We enjoyed meeting newly-admitted students when we joined our colleagues from the UBC recruitment teams at UBC Welcomes You and UBC Applicant Information Events in communities across Canada, the US and around the world this spring to welcome all newly-admitted students to LFS and UBC. Check here for updates on remaining visits, and watch your email inbox for invites to these events. Whether we’re coming to your hometown or not, you are always welcome to contact LFS Student Services with your questions at any time.
Curious about what comes next?
See your ‘Degree at a Glance,’ or learn about what it’s like to be a student in LFS by reading the featured profiles of Food, Nutrition and Health students, Valerie, Aki and Jeff, Applied Biology student, Courtney and Global Resource Systems student, Ainsley. New student profiles are being updated every month, so be sure to check back often for more insight to the LFS student experience.
If you’ve been admitted, and want a unique first-year experience, check out Land One, our first-year cohort program in collaboration with the Faculty of Forestry. You have to apply, so learn more about the program and access the application form on the Land One website – applications are due May 31!
