MPPGA Application Checklist

Before beginning your application to UBC’s Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs program, ensure you have taken the following steps:

  • Identify three referees who can write a letter of reference on your behalf. You will be asked to provide your referee’s name and contact information in your application. When you submit your application, your referees will receive an email with instructions on how to submit their letters of recommendation.
  • Collect transcripts from all the post-secondary institutions you have attended. This includes exchange institutions, zero-credit courses, language courses, and institutions that you have transferred out of. Even if these institutions appear on your home university’s transcript, we still need a separate transcript for them. Note that you must upload official copies of your transcripts. We do not accept “academic histories”, “course lists”, “screenshots”, or any document that states “unofficial or advising transcripts.”
  • Prepare a copy of your current C.V. or resume.
