Welcome to UBC Extended Learning

About Us

We believe that learning is a continuous, lifelong endeavour. Education – at any stage of life – should be flexible, innovative, and accessible.

We work with UBC faculties to create and deliver programs that meet the career and personal needs of our communities, including alumni, current UBC students and learners of all ages.

Together, we provide outstanding learning opportunities, bringing UBC excellence in academics, teaching and research to the communities we serve, and strengthening UBC’s contribution to society, industry and government.

In addition to UBC Extended Learning courses and programs, we offer specialized programming and unique pedagogy through our centres and institute.

How UBC Extended Learning Came to Be

UBC Extended Learning was formally established by the Vancouver Senate at UBC in early 2017 to respond to the needs of 21st century learners. Our mandate is to work with UBC faculties to deliver career and personal education courses and programs, providing expertise in business development, marketing, program design, student services and operational support.
