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.
