A new destination for international students

UBC Vantage College is your starting point to a UBC degree. The College offers a unique first year university program called Vantage One. The program combines one year of academic degree-focused credits with intensive academic English preparation. After successful completion of Vantage One, you will transition into the second year of your UBC degree. Join the Vantage One program in fall 2017 and be part of the UBC graduating class of 2021. You will join thousands of UBC alumni making important contributions in over 120 countries worldwide. UBC's academic faculties and research facilities are globally recognized for their influence and impact.

The 2017/2018 academic year will usher in the fourth cohort of students in the Vantage One program. Three cohorts of academically strong, diverse students have come before you, and are already on their way to completing a variety of UBC degrees. Vantage One offers four streams of study, with representation from over 29 nationalities. We have dedicated Academic Advisors available to help you plan for, and understand, your UBC degree path. In 2017/2018 you can look forward to studying in Orchard Commons, a sustainable, academic and residential complex.
