University of British Columbia (UBC) Extended Learning believes that learning is a continuous, lifelong endeavour. Education – at any stage of life – should be flexible, innovative, and accessible.
The school works with UBC faculties to create and deliver programs that meet the career and personal needs of our communities, including alumni, current UBC students and learners of all ages.
Together, they provide outstanding learning opportunities, bringing UBC excellence in academics, teaching and research to the communities we serve, and strengthening UBC’s contribution to society, industry and government.
In addition to UBC Extended Learning courses and programs, UBC Extended Learning offers specialized programming and unique pedagogy through two centres and institutes.
