Student Academic Experience
Students from the local community, across the region, and around the world choose UBC’s Okanagan campus for its unique learning environment. It is a place where students contribute to research alongside their professors, and other students, and the community engage in shared and mutually beneficial learning experiences.
Experiential education is an intentional and purposeful approach to teaching and learning integral to the UBC student experience, providing learners with the opportunities to gain essential knowledge and skills in their field of study shaped by direct experience and critical reflection.
Academic Integrity at UBC Okanagan
Teaching and learning with integrity is at the heart of UBC Okanagan’s academic community. Work is underway to maintain a strong culture of academic integrity through ongoing engagement with all members of our campus community.
Student Learning Hub
The Student Learning Hub, which opened in September 2019, streamlined undergraduate student access to academic supports in order to enhance the learning experience. It inspires students to succeed through quality, peer-supported learning programs, including support for writing, languages, math, science, and the Supplemental Learning program. This project unified services in a single high-profile location in order to remove boundaries and provide seamless access for students. This initiative specifically addresses Strategy 15: Student Experience and Strategy 2: Inspiring Spaces.
