UBC Award of Achievement Program

Students in a UBC Extended Learning Spanish class, and their instructor, Dinorah Dugas, discuss language learning.

This Award of Achievement program will be discontinued effective March 2022. We’re no longer accepting applications, and have contacted students registered in this program. If you’re a student and have not heard from us by now, please contact us. We’ll be happy to talk with you about your education goals and ensure you can reach them.

Effective communication is key to success in the world today. In multicultural Vancouver and throughout many parts of the world, speaking Spanish gives you access to career and travel opportunities you might not otherwise have, and a greater ability to experience Spanish-speaking cultures.

The UBC Award of Achievement in Spanish helps you expand your knowledge of the Spanish language and increase understanding of Hispanic cultures.
