Special Presentation - Andrew Arida from UBC

(Mr. Arida will speak after a presentation on University Programs and Scholarships by Stacey Schwegler on Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 beginning at 6:00 PM, in the Small Gym.)

We are very fortunate to have Andrew Arida - Director of Undergraduate Admissions at UBC speak to the Handsworth Community On November 8 at 7 pm in the Small Gym.

The topic:

Who gets in? The Truths and Myths of how Canadian Universities Make Admission Decisions

Presented by UBC’s director of undergraduate admissions, Andrew Arida

Grade 11 and 12 grades, self-reporting, personal statements, short answer questions, extra-curricular activities, and applicant interviews; there is a great deal of information that can go into admission decisions. This begs a question: how do Canadian universities use all this information to determine who gets in?  This presentation will provide an overview of the rationales and decision-making process Canadian universities often use to make admission decisions. Andrew will also dispel the myths and rumours that often surround the admission process; expect an interactive and lively discussion!


Grade 12 Counsellor Stacey Schwegler will be presenting an up date on University programs and Scholarship beginning at 6 pm.

Seating is limited. Priority to grade 12 parents.  Seating is by pre-registration RSVP at Eventbrite
