No! You do not need to provide TOEFL or IELTS scores or proof of your English Language proficiency. You assess your own language level if you haven’t taken these tests.
You can submit your most recent transcript or report card for consideration. For example, for UBC Future Global Leaders summer program 2021, we will accept report cards from winter 2020 (this might be your first semester or term).
We will make course cancellation decisions on or before April 30, 2021. We will notify students immediately. Should you wish to book flights earlier than April 30 and are concerned whether the course will run, please contact us for more information.
We will consider you if you are turning 15 during the program. You must have completed grade 10 or equivalent. If you register and do not meet the age requirements, we don’t issue a refund.
