About

History

In 2015, UNBC celebrated its 25th anniversary. It was in June 1990 that the members of the BC legislative assembly passed the UNBC Act, officially creating UNBC. The dream of having a northern university goes back much further, to the 1960s, when then-MLA Ray Williston set aside the land on which UNBC's Prince George campus is currently situated as a university reserve.

Education

To get a world-class education, you need to get out into the world. UNBC's award-winning faculty encourage students to work in regional communities, take part in international field schools and exchanges, and to apply their coursework to real scenarios. The result is student satisfaction and graduate employment rates that are through the roof.

Research

UNBC is one of four research intensive universities in BC. Working closely with faculty translates into many opportunities to participate in ground breaking research at a much earlier stage of your education that you'll find at a larger institution. Students at UNBC are participating in research as early as their first year.
