UBC Future Global Leaders Online

Take the Next Step Toward Your Future

UBC Future Global Leaders Online is a new pre-university summer program for high school students ages 15–18. Although our on-campus in-person program is suspended for 2020, a big part of UBC Future Global Leaders is helping students like you succeed at university and beyond.

So this summer, from July 20 to August 9, we’re offering two new online courses – one to help you get into a Canadian university, and one to help ESL/EAL learners write well at the university level.

I thought [the university preparation workshops] were really, really helpful. It’s interesting to hear from people who read actual applications, things that you should mention, not just about your academics, about being a whole person.
