March 29, 2010

According to a survey of University of British Columbia students, whose results are included in a board of governors document, 50.6% of domestic undergraduates and 57.8% of graduate students feel that tuition is too high. 32.6% of domestic undergraduate students and 20.7% of grad students surveyed reported that a proposed 2% tuition hike for both groups would seriously impact them and they would have to consider delaying their studies or not returning to UBC. Both groups of students selected financial assistance and course choice/availability as the top investment priorities for the university. UBC BoG report
