UBC Future Global Leaders On-Campus: Live the Experience

Meet UBC Future Global Leaders Students, Faculty and Staff

Who better to tell you about UBC Future Global Leaders than our students and monitors? Listen and read about their unique experiences and why they chose UBC Future Global Leaders. Hear from a parent, and meet a UBC professor.

Live the full university experience

Experience daily student life, inside and outside of class

After morning classes, all students attend workshops designed to help you succeed at university. Spend the rest of the afternoon visiting the many on-campus attractions or enjoying sports activities like swimming, tennis or skating.

Stay in a student residence and live the full university experience. Eat and socialize with other students, and get to know your monitors. You’re just steps away from your classes, and in easy reach of campus amenities and all the recreation you could ask for.  Join evening and weekend activities that include shopping, festivals, and visits to Vancouver’s favourite attractions.

Please read important COVID-19 health and safety information.
