Learning at UBC

Do you see work as a place to sit still, or a place to constantly learn? Is your career about staying the same, or finding ways to grow? There’s a reason why UBC employees say it’s fascinating to work here: this is a place where learning never stops!

Attend a lecture on lunch break. Visit a museum after work. Drop by the second-largest research library in Canada. Work one-on-one with a certified coach, or take an academic or continuing studies course. UBC has some of the top thinkers and researchers in Canada and the world, and as part of one of Canada’s premier universities, endless opportunities to expand your learning horizons are at your fingertips.
