Admission Information

The Faculty has a broad-based admissions policy that takes into consideration academic performance and evidence of other characteristics and qualities to select the most competitive students for the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences program. As part of this process, academically-competitive applicants will be required to participate in a virtual interview.

Meeting the minimum prescribed admission requirements means only that the applicant is eligible for selection but in no way guarantees admission to the program. In order to be considered for admission to the program, applicants must list the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences (BPSc) as their first-choice program on their application to UBC. Applicants who list the BPSc program as their second choice on the UBC admission application will not be considered for admission.

The program welcomes applications from qualified, self-identified Indigenous people. Indigenous applicants who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited for a virtual interview.

Please be advised that the BPSc program is not a pre-pharmacy program and does not fulfill all of the Entry-to-Practice Doctor of Pharmacy degree program prerequisitesGraduates of the BPSc program will not be eligible for licensure as a pharmacist.
