Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

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.
