UBC Elder Scholar

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

In order to comply with limits on social gatherings and physical distancing measures due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we won't be offering fall 2020 or winter 2021 UBC Elder Scholar courses. Explore our new online offering, UBC Academic Explorations, and learn from home.

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.
