UBC’s Vantage College: Canadians need not apply

2nd reason not to ago to a university. they only want money.  1st is misandry

 

 

The University of British Columbia is building an exclusive new college at a cost of more than $127 million, but Canadian students need not apply. The college will house only high-paying international students, most of them from China.

It may only be a big hole in the ground right now, but the Vantage College project has already angered many university students who say the money could have been better spent to improve student housing and limit tuition increases.

 

“It’s very disrespectful, said UBC student Aspen Dirk, “and a bit of a slap to the face.”

Students say UBC is spending $127.5 million at a time when money is tight to build a stand-alone college complete with its own residential tower for 1,000 international students.

The website for the college, which targets wealthy overseas Asian students, promises “round the clock support,” a “custom curriculum,”  and lower class sizes.

It allows students whose English-language test scores don’t meet UBC’s standards (but whose academic standards do) to enter a special first-year program designed just for them. If they complete the first-year program successfully, then they are able to continue into their second year at UBC.

Students will pay more than $50,000 a year for the privilege which includes tuition, accommodation and health care.
