Vancouver Summer Program

The Vancouver Summer Program is a four-week academic program offered by The University of British Columbia.

No matter where in the world you study,

by participating in the program
you can take two academic courses
at this world-renowned university
while learning about Canadian practices and culture.
UBC's School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) offers a variety of planning course packages that provide skills and knowledge in topics ranging from data analysis, GIS, and the art of negotiation to community engagement and the built environment.

While learning about these topics, you have a chance to immerse yourself in Canada's diverse culture and practice language skills and trades, as well as learn a new perspective in your field. In addition to interactive lectures and tours of the region, you can take part in a variety of social activities where you will meet students from other universities and UBC.

Please stay tuned for future SCARP participation in the Vancouver Summer program, or visit VSP’s website for more information, including costs and how to register.
