Workshop Schedule

The 2019 workshop series kicks off on Wednesday, February 27th with a panel discussion featuring students who have just finished applying to programs and are now working through deciding where to go. They can share with students their experiences, and the value they found in preparing early for the application process.

This yearlong workshop series helps guide students who are considering applying to graduate and professional programs. We start with an open discussion of what graduate programs are designed to do, what skills they tend to value, and how to increase your chances of being admitted. Over the course of the year we also review the entire application packet and help students develop their materials.

The workshop series is open to all UBC students although Sociology students and students in related disciplines usually benefit the most. If you plan to start a graduate program in September 2020, we suggest you start coming to this workshop in February 2019.

Students are asked to register for workshops here. This helps us prepare and know how many students are coming.
