Centre for Digital Media (CDM) courses take place at the state-of-the-art CDM campus in Vancouver. If you're staying in a UBC residence, you’ll take a 45-minute public bus ride to and from UBC with other Future Global Leaders (we’ll show you how!). Your daily schedule will be slightly different than the schedule of Future Global Leaders students attending courses at UBC Vancouver. See the course descriptions for more details.

Completion of UBC Future Global Leaders does not guarantee acceptance into an undergraduate program at the University of British Columbia.

UBC also offers a wide range of camps for children ages 3–17. For more information, visit UBC Camps.
