Welcome to LFS!
Dates: July 5 – August 12, 2021
It is an online program that will prepare you for academic success as you transition to university. You’ll refresh and build your academic skills in math, reading, and writing; feel confident about your academic readiness; and have access to a library of learning and wellness resources to use in your first year. There are three courses you can choose, and each is self-paced and self-directed with new content released weekly. You’ll be guided by course facilitators who are current students from your campus, who know your UBC Vancouver curricula first-hand.
Registration will open on Tuesday June 1. Check here for updates.
Dates: August 30 – September 3, 2021
A five-day academic orientation designed to introduce you to the university, your professors, and your classmates. You’ll spend time with senior peers and professors in your Faculty, make your first friends, and learn more about the UBC services available to you before classes start. UBC is working closely with public health authorities to determine what a safe return to campus will look like in the fall. This year, you’ll be able to participate in Jump Start either virtually or through a mix of in-person and online activities.
Through Jump Start, you will have opportunities to:
- Connect with professors (called Faculty Fellows)
- Connect with upper year LFS students
- Meet other new LFS students, just like you
- Learn about UBC
Registration is OPEN – go to the UBC Jump Start website to join in on the fun.
