UBC or UC Berkeley M.Arch


I have recently been accepted to UC Berkeley and UBC for their M.Arch programs starting Fall 2020. I would love input on which school you would recommend and why. I am interested in focusing on sustainability and timber construction.

Well UBC specializes in timber construction design and research so there you go, and it's probably cheaper.

If you don’t mind me asking, when did you receive your offer from UBC? 

I didn’t know they had already started sending out offers!

Hi, seems like UBC release offer sooner than I though. I received my offer with AP on 20 March (no mention $$). @ laurenkembi even received earlier than me. Don't know what makes the difference in the time they contact for offer. BTW good luck!


Back in my era many of the UBC profs had graduated from Berkeley!   So you kinda got the Berkeley school education but paid the UBC price!
