Further update regarding international student study permits and allocation of BC Provincial Attestation Letters

Since the March 1 update, the university has worked successfully with the Province of BC to ensure UBC is allocated sufficient quantities of Provincial Attestation Letters (PALs) to meet enrolment goals. 

The following pages have been updated, and continue to provide the latest information: 

UBC Vancouver – International Student Development (ISD): 

UBC Okanagan – Global Engagement Office (International Student Advising): 

The teams who support prospective and current student communications are reaching out across a variety of channels to let impacted students know about the process for obtaining a PAL and applying for a study permit. 

This effort will persist over the coming weeks as we continue to connect with students obtaining admission offers ahead of the acceptance deadline.
