Funding packages start at $22,000 per year for four years. A Teaching Assistantship is offered to all PhD students for five years. Moreover, there is a wide array of additional opportunities for financial aid from departmental, university, and external sources. The department is proud to support research development through its biennial Graduate Student Conference and annual Graduate Student Symposium that allow graduate students to share research with the academic community, network with their peers, and plan large-scale academic events. In addition, the Colloque en études francophones de la côte pacifique (CEFCP) brings together every year the graduate students from UBC and two other local institutions: Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria.
Doctoral students must satisfactorily complete course work, doctoral examinations, a PhD proposal, and write and defend a dissertation.
