            2009-2011, Masters

            Great professors, smaller class sizes, friendly atmosphere. (Watch out for the snow and cold in winter --minus 30 degrees, pack your thermal gear -- and the odd moose on campus). But otherwise a great student experience. Glad I did it. Thanks, UNBC!

          • Testimony
            2005-2009, Master in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies

            The unique settings of UNBC surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, the cozy, creative and modern atmosphere of the campus, its social life, its excellent professors and researchers, and the incredible opportunities they provide students have made UNBC one of the most positive and fun experiences of my life. Compared to larger campuses at UNBC you get personal attention from your teachers, are exposed to excellent networking opportunities, and you'll likely connect with career opportunities within government, first nations and industry before ending your education. I would highly recommend studying at UNBC.

            I studied at UNBC at the first year it was established. Since we were exchange students on our third or forth year, we got a great possibility to influence the courses. Small classes, great professors and really nice school and campus area. I still thinking of the time I had there with a big smile
