– One of my favourite things
of Future Global Leaders at UBC is that we get the
chance to get students who may step off the
plane, may be hesitant, a little bit shy, and by
the end of their two weeks or their four weeks with us, they go back home with the
confidence to enter university in a few years’ time and know
that they’re going to succeed. – We’re really excited for the students to have a unique experience and to really get to know Vancouver and really see what it would be like to be a university student, and just kind of give them
as much of that experience as possible. – I’ll wake up at like 7 every morning, we have like a meeting together, and then we go to breakfast, and then we have three hours of classes, and then we have like afternoon activities where we get to pick
where we go in Vancouver. – So the monitors at this
program are incredibly kind and compassionate. They make sure they’re there
for you no matter what. – I went into FGL as a student who was shy and I didn’t feel very comfortable
opening up to new people and at the end of FGL, I was so comfortable with all
my friends that I had made, and I really wasn’t as shy as I had been. – My daughter attended UBC
Future Global Leaders in 2015. I always enjoyed hearing
what Nicola did everyday at Future Global Leaders. She was amazed with the instructor. He was a professor at
UBC and he inspired her to think about research, new ideas, and being able to succeed at it. – So UBC is consistently
ranked among the top research and teaching universities in the world, but one of the things that’s
really special here, I think, is that applies across disciplines. It’s in the sciences, it’s
in the arts and humanities, it’s in psychology, social sciences, all kinds of other areas. So you’re not just meeting top
people and ideas in one area, but across the board. – Studying in the Future
Global Leaders program has been great. It’s been awesome to
be able to meet people from all over the world and like all kinds of
different walks of life. – It’s a very worthwhile experience because it’s a course that helps guide you towards university. – Whoever you are, if you’re shy or if you’re really high-energy,
you will make friends here, you’ll feel comfortable, and
you will have a place here.
