International Development

UBC Certificate Program

The UBC Certificate in International Development program is being phased out and will end by March 31, 2023. We invite you to review the updated schedule and register for courses so you can successfully complete the program by March 31, 2023. Applications for this program are now closed. 

Since its inception in 2005, the UBC Certificate in International Development has addressed the need for trained professionals with knowledge of international development issues and the skills to work effectively in various contexts. However, several factors, including the global pandemic, have contributed to a decline in registrations, and unfortunately we cannot continue to offer this program. 

Contribute effectively to international development projects with new techniques, tools and strategies.

The UBC Certificate in International Development is a practical, hands-on program that provides you vital skills in international development, an understanding of intercultural issues, and peer networking opportunities.
