UBC Elder Scholar

"The professors teach us how to think. They show us how they do their research, and how to learn something new."

We are looking forward to offering UBC Elder Scholar courses in person in 2022. We invite you to explore UBC Academic Explorations, online and interactive lecture series that allow you to learn from wherever you are.

Explore in depth a variety of fascinating topics presented by UBC professors and other experts in classes of 20-60 students. Geared toward retirees, semi-retirees and mature adult learners, each lecture series offers time for questions, discussion and socializing over coffee and tea.

Interested in learning outside the classroom? Our walking tours, hosted by a local historian, take you through the streets and history of Vancouver.
