Offered what I needed, new campus as a branch of UBC in Vancouver but included the small school vibes. The application process included an extensive personal profile but acceptances wasn't solely based on academic marks and achievement. Found that through that experience, they really valued their students and wanted them all to feel welcome and be able to give their gifts in many different ways across their campus.
I am a new student still so I need to fully be immersed before I can give a good opinion but I have heard that it really whips you into shape in terms of what they are teaching you. Class sizes are small so it also gives you a chance to connect to the professor and ensure that you are refining all the knowledge that you should be.
I chose UBC because of it's a top-rated school in the country and I wanted the best learning opportunity I could get. As a student going into sciences, UBC offers a wide range of courses in the subjects I'm interested in. The admission process was straight forward, fees were average. I applied to four schools and I was accepted into all of them due to my high grades in secondary school. UBC was always my first choice which is why I ended up choosing it.
I'm not completely sure what this question is asking, but in terms of the courses I'm taking in my degree, I believe it is fair. In order to earn a science degree, I have to take a balance of chemistry physics and math courses, and although I am not equally fond of all three, I understand why all are included in the curriculum.
Good reputation, highly research-based learning, and smaller campus than UBC Vancouver, which I thought would be less intimidating for me. UBC Okanagan has a tight-knit community, which makes it easier to bump into familiar faces while going to class.
My opinion of the course curriculum mixed. I had to take many courses in the first two years of my degree that are unrelated to my interests and career goals simply because they were required courses. That being said, those challenging courses helped me to become a more confident student.
