Ready to join Land One? Great! Here’s how it works:
Students must first be admitted to the Faculty of Land and Food Systems or the Faculty of Forestry. Consult the Admission section for details on applying to the Faculty of Land and Food Systems or the Faculty of Forestry at UBC.
Once you pass this first admission process, please check if you have the following information ready for your application:
- Biology 11 or 12 (or equivalent) grade
- Mathematics 12 or Pre-calculus 12 (or equivalent) or UBC Mathematics Basic Skills Test or Calculus 12 grade
- BC English 12 (or equivalent) grade
- A letter of intent stating why you are interested in the Land One program and how you will contribute to the Land One community (no more than 500 words)
Please report your final grade, when available. For all courses that will be completed by June 2020, please report your in-progress grade. If you haven’t taken the prerequisite courses above, you can still apply for Land One but must complete the prerequisite courses through summer school or distance education before Land One starts in September.

The admission deadline is May 31st, 2020 (with a decision on your application by early/mid June)
