Program Requirements

Students are required to take courses designed to prepare them for entry to participating undergraduate degree programs and UBC Vantage College reserves the right to limit student enrolment accordingly. Specific course requirements will be set out by the College from time to time and will be adjusted to synchronize with undergraduate degree program first-year curricula. With permission of the College, students may take up to 6 credits of 100-level UBC coursework not included in the 11-month International Program.
