Future Global Leaders

If you’re a high school student aged 15 to 18, you can get a head start on your academic goals by taking part in the UBC Future Global Leaders program. During each 10-week online course, you’ll explore your academic interests with a top-tier university, try a popular university course without the stress of exams, and make friends from around the world. These pre-university courses are a great way to work out what your passions are while you’re still in high school, and prepare yourself for success at university and beyond.

Who can attend:

Students from 15 to 18 who have completed Grade 10 or equivalent. We suggest that you have a grade point average of 78% or letter grade B or higher, or a minimum IB final grade of 5. Find out more information about eligibility.
