An aerial of Surrey with clouds, mountains and sunshine

"With our growing population, there is no question that there is ample demand for more post-secondary options within Surrey."

Mayor's Statement

Another sign of Surrey’s prominence is the expansion of UBC’s physical therapy program into Surrey. I want to commend UBC and the provincial government for their foresight in bringing this program to Surrey. It will allow students from Surrey and south of the Fraser access to a world class education close to home. With today’s announcement, UBC joins KPU and SFU in offering university programs in Surrey. With our growing population, there is no question that there is ample demand for more post-secondary options within Surrey. I look forward to seeing what is next for UBC in Surrey.
