Note: The UBC School of Information is in the process of implementing a recently-redesigned curriculum for the MLIS. As part of this update, the UBC iSchool will be transitioning to a single intake admission model and phasing out the January intake. From January 2024 onwards, we will only be accepting applications for the September intake, with the annual deadline on January 15. Please apply by January 15, 2024, if you are interested in pursuing master degrees at the iSchool in September 2024.
