UBC Program


Institut de Français à UBC

Extended Learning at UBC offers the Institut de Français à UBC, a three-week program that provides teachers and administrators time to study French while enjoying the summer in Vancouver and at UBC.

The program is offered at all levels and is an excellent way to acquire or improve language skills in an immersion setting. Morning conversational language classes are combined with afternoon socio-cultural activities, which provide small group discussions in French.
Participants from outside the Lower Mainland can stay at the Pacific Spirit Hostel or Westcoast Suites on the UBC campus.

BC teachers can apply for bursaries directly from UBC Extended Learning. These bursaries are funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage of the Government of Canada and administered by the French Programs Unit of the Ministry of Education.
