Live the Experience

A big part of UBC Future Global Leaders is preparing you to succeed in university and beyond. So this summer, we're offering two new university preparation courses you can do from anywhere. Courses run July 20 to August 9. Find out what we’re offering!

UBC Extended Learning made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 UBC Future Global Leaders on-campus program due to COVID-19. Our new UBC Future Global Leaders Online courses are open for registration now.

We are planning to resume our on-campus UBC Future Global Leaders program in July and August 2021. Subscribe for news and registration updates.

Meet our UBC Future Global Leaders Students, Parents and Faculty

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 have a choice of helpful workshops and exciting activities. Workshops are designed to prepare you to succeed at university.  Weekday activities include visits to campus attractions, and select off-campus locations in around Vancouver.

Choose to 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.
