Andrew Arida, Director of Undergraduate Admissions at UBC, talks about a few of the benefits of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

Is the IB Diploma Right for Me?

Please join your fellow parents on Monday, October 15 in the Hall at Pemberton Woods as GNS welcomes Ms. Paola Baca, Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of British Columbia, for an informative evening detailing how UBC evaluates the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

For the last several years, UBC has compared the first-year outcomes of DP graduates against those of their non-DP peers, with some extremely interesting results. Ms Baca's presentation includes an overview of the methods UBC employs in the Admissions process, as well as research that extends beyond classroom learning and into the ways that students participate in all areas of university life.

Parents of children at all grade levels will benefit from this engaging and informative presentation.
