We offer applied courses leading to certificates and industry-recognized credentials, but which do not apply to UBC degree-credit programs. Many of our courses are open enrolment, meaning all you need to do is create an account and register.

International English Language Testing System (IELTS) minimum overall band score of 6.5 with no individual score less than 6.0

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) overall score: 90 with a minimum score of 22 in reading and listening, 21 in writing and speaking
