UBC MEL MHLP 2025 admissions - applications now open

Ready to invest in your future? The application portal for the Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) or Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) is now open for programs starting in January 2025.

If you’re ready for career growth, this is the time to apply for a professional master’s degree like the MEL or MHLP at the University of British Columbia. Students take a curated selection of sector-specific technical courses and courses in business and leadership. These are complemented by a wide range of optional professional development opportunities, from networking events to industry conferences and more.

It’s a powerful combination that can contribute to professional and personal transformation.


We are now accepting applications open for programs beginning in January 2025.

Start your application now to be part of the 2025 cohort and accelerate your career development.

We offer sector-specific programs in healthcare and applied sciences. Each offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that includes technical, industry-focused courses along with business and leadership courses.

You’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge you need to lead teams, take on positions of greater responsibility and make an impact in your industry.


There are two MEL and MHLP application rounds:

  • Round 1 (all applicants): March 25, 2024
  • Round 2 (all applicants): June 25, 2024


It’s a good idea to apply in the first round. Doing so means you will find out on May 1, 2024, if you’ve been accepted into the program, which gives you plenty of time to plan your move to Vancouver and making the transition to student life at UBC.
