COVID-19 Information for Vancouver Summer Program

August 14, 2020 | 9:00 am PT

As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, we at the University of British Columbia have been adjusting to a new normal. While we are disappointed that VSP was cancelled for 2020, we remain optimistic that the situation will continue to improve and that we will be able to host students on our campus next summer.

Based on the current situation in BC, VSP plans to run on UBC’s Vancouver campus in June and July 2021.

We are committed to continually monitoring the situation to ensure that we will be able to offer a safe and enjoyable experience for all students.

With the spread of COVID-19 globally and the risk that poses to travelling students and faculty, UBC has made the difficult decision to cancel the Vancouver Summer Program for 2020.  We hope that we will be able to welcome you to UBC in Summer 2021.  Applications will open in Fall 2020.
