Welcome to the Student Group Resources Centre!

UBC Applied Science hosts a diverse range of student groups, representing different communities such as design teams and industry chapters. We provide a comprehensive collection of resources and guides to assist these student groups in their operations and establishment. As you explore our website, you will discover that each student group has its unique affiliations and characteristics.

By joining a student group, be it student government, a club, or a design team, you will not only enhance your academic skill set but also forge connections with individuals who share similar interests and goals. Engaging in a project, concept, or initiative within a student group allows you to dedicate your time and contribute to meaningful endeavors while fostering valuable relationships.

To maintain status as an official APSC-affiliated Student Group, an eligible group has to complete a number of tasks, including the Student Renewal Form known as the Super Application. Find out more under your respective student group section below!
