Congratulations to all those who have pressed submit on their application for graduate study at UBC Music!  Our faculty are looking forward to reading the materials you have provided, and excited to hear performance applicants audition in person or via video upload. Below is a quick reminder of some deadlines, and a few tips.

Dec. 15th: Submission of additional documents:  If documents were requested of you in your application that you haven’t uploaded yet (i.e. transcripts or English proficiency scores) you can upload them to your application by December 15th by logging into your UBC Student Service Centre.  When you log in, you will be able to see a list of the possible documents you can upload.  If you know you have not submitted a specific document, but it isn’t on the list as possible to upload, please contact Juliet; she may be able to help.
