Apply to our Graduate Certificate in Migration Studies at UBC Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.

Application Procedure

We’ll be providing more detailed information about admissions in the coming weeks. Applications will be open by late May 2024.

Students from all graduate programs can apply. Students will normally apply in May for intake into the certificate program in September.

Applicants must have the following:

  • Be currently enrolled in and making adequate academic progress in a UBC master’s degree program, research or professional, or doctoral degree program;
  • Demonstration of an interest in migration or mobilities studies;
  • A signature of the student’s supervisor or graduate program director that they are aware of this undertaking.

Students must submit a statement of interest describing their interests in migration research and/or professional practice, their CV, copies of all transcripts submitted for their UBC graduate degree application, and current graduate degree academic record transcripts. Acceptance into the program will be based on the strength of demonstrated interest in migration/mobilities research and/or professional practice, fit with the program’s objectives, and academic preparation and performance as shown by academic records. Establishing a cohort with diverse disciplinary backgrounds will also be considered when making admission decisions.
