The University of British Columbia has established UBC Vantage College on its Vancouver campus to offer programs that broaden the capacity of the University to attract and support outstanding international students.

The College offers first-year programs for international students from a wide variety of school systems, and with different linguistic and cultural backgrounds, to have the opportunity to transition into the second year of a UBC degree program upon successful completion.

The programs have been designed for international secondary school students who demonstrate a strong potential to succeed in university, but who may benefit from smaller class sizes and additional academic, language, and social supports. Students will form a cohort within the program that includes academic language preparation, additional academic support, and the completion of first-year coursework.

Upon successful completion of an 11-month program, students will have completed a minimum of 24 credits of first-year coursework applicable to a degree program and are assessed for transition into the second year of study towards a UBC Bachelor’s degree in the Faculties of Arts, Science, Applied Science, and Management.
