For individual student payments, the University of British Columbia has engaged Western Union Business Solutions to facilitate payments for the Vancouver Summer Program.
Once you have received your Letter of Acceptance and ready to make payment, please follow the instructions listed on the Western Union Vancouver Summer Program payment page:
IMPORTANT: WU Payments are to be made in your home currency within three days of securing your quote. Do not convert to Canadian funds prior to sending through WU. This will either result in a double conversion and an underpayment which you will be responsible for or a WU wire rejection which you will need to follow up with your banking institution and resend.
