Peer Academic Support

Navigate your academic journey with peer-to-peer support from Arts Peer Advisors or Arts Peer Academic Coaches.

Arts Peer Advisors

After you’ve been admitted to UBC Arts, you’ll receive support from the Arts Peer Advisors who will help with the academic transition to UBC by sharing information on degree requirements, course selection, and the registration process.

If you have questions for Peer Advisors, use the Arts Advising contact form or the Faculty of Arts Facebook page.
