UBC Summer opportunity 2018
Greetings from the University of British Columbia. In cooperation with the UBC Go Global office, we would like to share an exciting opportunity for your students to study at UBC next summer. We hope that this program offers your students a greater range of flexibility to study here in Vancouver.
The Vancouver Summer Program (VSP), is a four- week academic program offering for international undergraduate students from cooperating universities to study at UBC. The VSP provides the opportunity for students to take two academic courses in various UBC Faculties while learning about Canadian practices and culture.
This summer, we invite students to come and experience why Vancouver has been consistently voted one of the best places to live in the world. They can come study at North America’s most international university* and connect with other globally-minded students.
