The UBC-Langara Aboriginal Transfer Partnership (UBC-ATP) is a collaboration between the University of British Columbia and Langara College that offers First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students a clear pathway to bachelor degrees at UBC’s Vancouver Campus.

At Langara you’ll receive the support and academic preparation necessary to successfully transfer to one of a number of faculties at UBC.

At both Langara and UBC you’ll find student services and a community of faculty, staff, and fellow students to support and guide you.

As a UBC-ATP student, you'll have access to financial advising, scholarships, bursaries, and other assistance programs. In addition to the support available to all students, there are specific awards available to those students enrolled in the transfer partnership. For the most up-to-date information on current scholarship information, visit the scholarships page of the UBC-Langara Aboriginal Transfer Partnership website.

Here's how to apply:

Step 1: Apply to Langara College
Be sure to self-identify as Indigenous on your application. To attend Langara College:

  • You must have successfully completed a BC secondary program (Grade 12) or equivalent.
  • You must be at least 19 years of age on the first day of your first semester.
  • You must have successfully completed an Adult Basic Education (ABE) or General Educational Development (GED) program.
  • See Langara's full admission requirements.

Step 2: Enrol in UBC-ATP
(Do this before you apply to UBC.)
Complete the UBC-Langara Aboriginal Transfer Partnership registration form and indicate your UBC faculty or faculties of interest:

  • Applied Science
  • Arts
  • Commerce
  • Forestry
  • Kinesiology
  • Land and Food Systems
  • Science

Step 3: Submit your registration form to the Gathering Space
Once you have filled out your UBC-ATP Registration Form, email it to aboriginal@langara.ca or drop it off at the Gathering Space (C140).

Step 4: Create a transition plan
Meet with someone from Langara's Indigenous Education and Services to create a transition plan. Once you have a transition plan in place, request a statement of completion to submit as part of your UBC application. To get started, please email aboriginal@langara.ca.

Step 5: Meet UBC's admission requirements
As a Langara transfer student, you must meet UBC’s general admission requirements for transfer students from a Canadian college and your chosen faculty’s specific requirements on the Vancouver campus before applying to UBC. It takes two semesters of full-time study to earn 24 credits, so most students spend one or two years at Langara.
