We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Vancouver is a city in British Columbia, western Canada. It is located around 40km from the border with the USA and is one of the busiest seaports in North America. There are three public universities in Vancouver, along with a number of other higher education providers and over 90,000 students.
Historically, Vancouver has been an important centre for forestry, but international trade and tourism have now become increasingly important to the local economy. It is also renowned as one of the most cosmopolitan and ethnically diverse cities in the world, with over half of its residents speaking a language other than English.
Postgraduate students in Vancouver benefit from living and studying in a city which is equally famous for its landscape, sport and intellectual achievement. Stanley Park is a 400-hectare park that borders Vancouver, offering residents of the city the chance to explore a pristine rainforest environment on their doorstep. The Capilano Suspension Bridge, meanwhile, is located in North Vancouver and gives visitors the opportunity to view the forest from a dizzying 70-metre height.
The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia has a world-renowned collection of First Nations sculptures and art, while Vancouver Art Gallery regularly hosts cutting-edge exhibitions from around the world.
The city has hosted the Winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games as well as the FIFA Women’s World Cup and is also the ongoing home of the increasingly renowned Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conferences.
Founded in 1908, the University of British Columbia (UBC) is the largest university in Vancouver with around 60,000 students. UBC regularly ranks among the top 50 institutions in the world and is a publicly-funded research university.
Simon Fraser University is another public research university based in the region, with campuses in the nearby cities of Burnaby and Surrey as well as Vancouver itself.
In addition to these universities, you can also study a Masters in Vancouver at a range of other public and private higher education institutions. The Emily Carr University of Art and Design, for example, focuses on creative disciplines.
Vancouver has a robust, diverse economy with strengths in several sectors. It’s frequently known as ‘Hollywood North’, thanks to the many film and TV productions that take place in the city and the surrounding area. Vancouver is also the location of the largest port in Canada (and one of the busiest in North America).
Technology is also an important part of Vancouver’s economy, with plenty of major companies based in the city. These include Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Amazon, as well as innovative start-ups.
